American King James Version
Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God
1Have mercy on me, O God, according to your loving kindness: according to the multitude of your tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight: that you might be justified when you speak, and be clear when you judge.
5Behold, I was shaped in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part you shall make me to know wisdom.
7Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
10Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11Cast me not away from your presence; and take not your holy spirit from me.
12Restore to me the joy of your salvation; and uphold me with your free spirit.
13Then will I teach transgressors your ways; and sinners shall be converted to you.
14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, you God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
15O Lord, open you my lips; and my mouth shall show forth your praise.
16For you desire not sacrifice; else would I give it: you delight not in burnt offering.
17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
18Do good in your good pleasure to Zion: build you the walls of Jerusalem.
19Then shall you be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks on your altar.
