4Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.4Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.4Against You, You only, I have sinned And done what is evil in Your sight, So that You are justified when You speak And blameless when You judge.4Against 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 thou judgest.4Against You--You alone--I have sinned and done this evil in Your sight. So You are right when You pass sentence; You are blameless when You judge.
