Psalms 25

A Psalm of Dawid.

1 Unto You, O יהוה, do I lift up my soul.

2 O my God (Elohim), I trust in You; let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

3 Yea, let none who wait on You be ashamed; let them be ashamed who transgress without cause.

4 Shew me Your ways, O יהוה; teach me Your paths.

5 Lead me in Your truth, and teach me; for You are the God (Elohim) of my salvation; on You do I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O יהוה, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to Your mercy remember You me for Your goodness’ sake, O יהוה.

8 Good and upright is יהוה; therefore will He teach sinners in the way.

9 The meek will He guide in judgment; and the meek will He teach His way.

10 All the paths of יהוה are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

11 For Your name’s sake, O יהוה, pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.

12 What man is he that feareth יהוה? Him shall He teach in the way that he shall choose.

13 His soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14 The secret of יהוה is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant.

15 Mine eyes are ever toward יהוה; for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn You unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged; O bring You me out of my distresses.

18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

20 O keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in You.

21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on You.

22 Redeem Yisrael, O God (Elohim), out of all his troubles.
