|<< Psalm 25 >>|
To You, O Lord, I Lift Up My Soul
Unto the end, a psalm for David. To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
2In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
3Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.
4Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.
5Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.
6Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.
7The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness' sake, O Lord.
8The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.
9He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.
10All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.
11For thy name's sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.
12Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.
13His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.
14The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.
15My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.
16Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.
17The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.
18See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.
19Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.
20Keep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.
21The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.
22Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.
