Psalms 25

Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon.

A Psalm of David.

To You, O  Lord, I a lift up my soul.
O my God, in You b I trust,
Do not let me c be ashamed;
Do not let my d enemies exult over me.
Indeed e none of those who wait for You will be ashamed;
Or Let ashamed
Those who g deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

h Make me know Your ways, O  Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in i Your truth and teach me,
For You are the j God of my salvation;
For You I k wait all the day.
l Remember, O  Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they have been
Or everlasting
n from of old.
Do not remember the o sins of my youth or my transgressions;
p According to Your lovingkindness remember me,
For Your q goodness’ sake, O  Lord.

r Good and s upright is the  Lord;
Therefore He t instructs sinners in the way.
He u leads the
Or afflicted
humble in justice,
And He w teaches the
Or afflicted
humble His way.
10 All the paths of the  Lord are y lovingkindness and truth
To z those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
11 For aa Your name’s sake, O  Lord,
ab Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

12 Who is the man who ac fears the  Lord?
He will ad instruct him in the way he should choose.
13 His soul will ae abide in
Lit good
And his
Lit seed
descendants will ah inherit the
Or earth
14 The
Or counsel or intimacy
ak secret of the  Lord is for those who fear Him,
Or And His covenant, to make them know it
And He will am make them know His covenant.
15 My an eyes are continually toward the  Lord,
For He will
Lit bring out
ap pluck my feet out of the net.

16  aq Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am ar lonely and afflicted.
Some commentators read Relieve the troubles of my heart
The at troubles of my heart are enlarged;
Bring me au out of my distresses.
18  av Look upon my affliction and my
Lit toil
And ax forgive all my sins.
19 Look upon my enemies, for they ay are many,
And they az hate me with violent hatred.
20  ba Guard my soul and deliver me;
Do not let me bb be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
21 Let bc integrity and uprightness preserve me,
For bd I wait for You.
22  be Redeem Israel, O God,
Out of all his troubles.
