For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your loving kindness.
According to the multitude of your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity.
Cleanse me from my sin.
3For I know my transgressions.
My sin is constantly before me.
4Against you, and you only, have I sinned,
and done that which is evil in your sight;
that you may be proved right when you speak,
and justified when you judge. ▼
5Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity.
In sin my mother conceived me.
6Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts.
You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
7Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean.
Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8Let me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9Hide your face from my sins,
and blot out all of my iniquities.
10Create in me a clean heart, O God.
Renew a right spirit within me.
11Do not throw me from your presence,
and do not take your holy Spirit from me.
12Restore to me the joy of your salvation.
Uphold me with a willing spirit.
13Then I will teach transgressors your ways.
Sinners shall be converted to you.
14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation.
My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
15Lord, open my lips.
My mouth shall declare your praise.
16For you do not delight in sacrifice, or else I would give it.
You have no pleasure in burnt offering.
17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.
A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
18Do well in your good pleasure to Zion.
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness,
in burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings.
Then they will offer bulls on your altar.
