Psalm 25: A Psalm of David
Unto thee O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee. Let me not
be ashamed. Let not my enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee
be ashamed. Let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy
ways O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth and teach me, for thou
art the God of my salvation. On thee do I wait all the the day. Remember O Lord
thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness, for they have been ever of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions. According to thy
mercy remember thou me for thy goodness sake O Lord. Good and upright is the
Lord, therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in
judgement, and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are
mercy and truth, unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy
name’s sake O Lord, pardon mine iniquity for it is great. What man is he that
feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. The soul
shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the
Lord is with them that fear him, and he shall show them his covenant. Mine eyes
are ever towards the Lord, for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn thee
unto me and have mercy, unto me for I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles
of my heart are enlarged, O bring thou me out of my distress. Look upon my
affliction and my pain, and forgive all my sins. Consider my enemies for they
are many. And they hate me with cruel hatred. O keep my soul and deliver me.
Let me not be ashamed for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness
preserve me, for I wait on thee. Redeem Israel O God out of all his troubles.
