Psalms 25

Of David.

1 To you, O Lord, my soul is lifted up. 2O my God, I have put my faith in you, let me not be shamed; let not my haters be glorying over me. 3Let no servant of yours be put to shame; may those be shamed who are false without cause. 4Make your steps clear to me, O Lord; give me knowledge of your ways. 5Be my guide and teacher in the true way; for you are the God of my salvation; I am waiting for your word all the day. 6O Lord, keep in mind your pity and your mercies; for they have been from the earliest times. 7Do not keep in mind my sins when I was young, or my wrongdoing: let your memory of me be full of mercy, O Lord, because of your righteousness. 8Good and upright is the Lord: so he will be the teacher of sinners in the way. 9He will be an upright guide to the poor in spirit: he will make his way clear to them. 10All the ways of the Lord are mercy and good faith for those who keep his agreement and his witness. 11Because of your name, O Lord, let me have forgiveness for my sin, which is very great. 12If a man has the fear of the Lord, the Lord will be his teacher in the way of his pleasure. 13His soul will be full of good things, and his seed will have the earth for its heritage. 14The secret of the Lord is with those in whose hearts is the fear of him; he will make his agreement clear to them. 15My eyes are turned to the Lord at all times; for he will take my feet out of the net. 16Be turned to me, and have mercy on me; for I am troubled and have no helper. 17The troubles of my heart are increased: O take me out of my sorrows. 18Give thought to my grief and my pain; and take away all my sins. 19See how those who are against me are increased, for bitter is their hate of me. 20O keep my soul, and take me out of danger: let me not be shamed, for I have put my faith in you. 21For my clean and upright ways keep me safe, because my hope is in you. 22Give Israel salvation, O God, out of all his troubles.
