Chapter 51

1

 

  For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David; when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: According to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 

 

 


2

 

 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin. 

 

 


3

 

 For I know my transgressions; And my sin is ever before me. 

 

 


4

 

 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, And done that which is evil in thy sight; That thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, And be clear when thou judgest. 

 

 


5

 

 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity; And in sin did my mother conceive me. 

 

 


6

 

 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts; And in the hidden part thou wilt make me to know wisdom. 

 

 


7

 

 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 

 

 


8

 

 Make me to hear joy and gladness, That the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 

 

 


9

 

 Hide thy face from my sins, And blot out all mine iniquities. 

 

 


10

 

 Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. 

 

 


11

 

 Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy holy Spirit from me. 

 

 


12

 

 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; And uphold me with a willing spirit. 

 

 


13

 

 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; And sinners shall be converted unto thee. 

 

 


14

 

 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation; [And] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. 

 

 


15

 

 O Lord, open thou my lips; And my mouth shall show forth thy praise. 

 

 


16

 

 For thou delightest not in sacrifice; else would I give it: Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering. 

 

 


17

 

 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 

 

 


18

 

 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: Build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 

 

 


19

 

 Then will thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, In burnt-offering and in whole burnt-offering: Then will they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
