A Psalm of David.

[1] UNTO thee, O Jehovah, do I lift up my soul.

[2] O my God, in thee have I trusted,

Let me not be put to shame;

Let not mine enemies triumph over me.

[3] Yea, none that wait for thee shall be put to shame:

They shall be put to shame that deal treacherously without cause.

[4] Show me thy ways, O Jehovah;

Teach me thy paths.

[5] Guide me in thy truth, and teach me;

For thou art the God of my salvation;

For thee do I wait all the day.

[6] Remember, O Jehovah, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;

For they have been ever of old.

[7] Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:

According to thy lovingkindness remember thou me,

For thy goodness’ sake, O Jehovah.

[8] Good and upright is Jehovah:

Therefore will he instruct sinners in the way.

[9] The meek will he guide in justice;

And the meek will he teach his way.

[10] All the paths of Jehovah are lovingkindness and truth

Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

[11] For thy name’s sake, O Jehovah,

Pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.

[12] What man is he that feareth Jehovah?

Him shall he instruct in the way that he shall choose.

[13] His soul shall dwell at ease;

And his seed shall inherit the land.

[14] The friendship〖Or, counsel. Or, secret.〗 of Jehovah is with them that fear him;

And〖Or, And his covenant, to make them know it.〗 he will show them his covenant.

[15] Mine eyes are ever toward Jehovah;

For he will pluck my feet out of the net.

[16] Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me;

For I am desolate and afflicted.

[17] The troubles of my heart are〖Or, as otherwise read, relieve thou, And bring me &c.〗 enlarged:

Oh bring thou me out of my distresses.

[18] Consider mine affliction and my travail;

And forgive all my sins.

[19] Consider mine enemies, for they are many;

And they hate me with cruel hatred.

[20] Oh keep my soul, and deliver me:

Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in thee.

[21] Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,

For I wait for thee.

[22] Redeem Israel, O God,

Out of all his troubles.
