To the chief musician, a psalm of David,1
When Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in unto Bath-sheba’.2 3 Be gracious unto me, O God, according to thy kindness: according to the greatness of thy mercies blot out my transgressions. 4 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 5 For of my transgressions I have full knowledge; and my sin is before me continually. 6 To thee, thee only, have I sinned, and what is evil in thy eyes have I done:—in order that thou mightest be righteous when thou speakest, be justified when thou judgest. 7 Behold, in iniquity was I brought forth; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 8 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: therefore do thou cause me to know wisdom in the recesses of the heart. 9 Cleanse me from sin with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 10 Cause me to hear gladness and joy; that the bones which thou hast crushed may rejoice. 11 Hide thy face from my sins, and all my iniquities do thou blot out. 12 Create unto me a clean heart, O God; and a firm spirit renew thou within me. 13 Cast me not away from thy presence; and thy holy spirit do not take from me. 14 Restore unto me the gladness of thy salvation; and with a liberal spirit do thou support me.— 15 I will teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall return unto thee. 16 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation; that my tongue may sing aloud of thy righteousness. 17 O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 18 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: in burnt-offering hast thou no delight. 19 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, wilt thou not despise. Do good in thy favor unto Zion; build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then wilt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt-offering and entire offering: then shall bullocks be offered upon thy altar.
