Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 51:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Deliver me from blood-guiltiness - This is one of the expressions that gives most color to the propriety of the title affixed to this Psalm. Here he may have in view the death of Uriah, and consider that his blood cries for vengeance against him; and nothing but the mere mercy of God can wipe this blood from his conscience. The prayer here is earnest and energetic: O God! thou God of my salvation! deliver me! The Chaldee reads, "Deliver me (מדין קטול middin ketol) from the judgment of slaughter."
My tongue shall sing aloud - My tongue shall praise thy righteousness. I shall testify to all that thou hast the highest displeasure against sin, and wilt excuse it in no person; and that so merciful art thou, that if a sinner turn to thee with a deeply penitent and broken heart, thou wilt forgive his iniquities. None, from my case, can ever presume; none, from my case, need ever despair.

Why did you despise the word of the LORD by doing what is evil in his eyes? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife to be your own. You killed him with the sword of the Ammonites.
The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty,
My tongue will proclaim your righteousness, your praises all day long.
Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools.
My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long-- though I know not how to relate them all.
