|To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the
unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
|1||Have mercy upon me, O
God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of
tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
||Have mercy upon me|
|2||Wash me throughly
from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
|3||For I acknowledge my
transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
|4||Against thee, thee
only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou
mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when
||have I sinned R304|
|5||Behold, I was shapen
in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
|6||Behold, thou desirest
truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt
me to know wisdom.
|7||Purge me with hyssop,
and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
|8||Make me to hear joy
and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may
|9||Hide thy face from my
sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
|10||Create in me a clean
heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
||Create in me|
|11||Cast me not away
from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
||thy holy spirit|
|12||Restore unto me the
joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
||Restore unto me|
|13||Then will I
teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
|14||Deliver me from
bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue
shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
|15||O Lord, open thou my
lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
|16||For thou desirest
not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in
|17||The sacrifices of
God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God,
wilt not despise.
|18||Do good in thy good
pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
|19||Then shalt thou be
pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and
whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
