Chapter 50

1

 

 Unto the end, a psalm of David, 

 

 


2

 

 when Nathan the prophet came to him after he had sinned with Bethsabee. 

 

 


3

 

 Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy great mercy. And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my iniquity. 

 

 


4

 

 Wash me yet more from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 

 

 


5

 

 For I know my iniquity, and my sin is always before me. 

 

 


6

 

 To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: that thou mayst be justified in thy words and mayst overcome when thou art judged. 

 

 


7

 

 For behold I was conceived in iniquities; and in sins did my mother conceive me. 

 

 


8

 

 For behold thou hast loved truth: the uncertain and hidden things of thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me. 

 

 


9

 

 Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 

 

 


10

 

 To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness: and the bones that have been humbled shall rejoice. 

 

 


11

 

 Turn away thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 

 

 


12

 

 Create a clean heart in me, O God: and renew a right spirit within my bowels. 

 

 


13

 

 Cast me not away from thy face; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 

 

 


14

 

 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and strengthen me with a perfect spirit. 

 

 


15

 

 I will teach the unjust thy ways: and the wicked shall be converted to thee. 

 

 


16

 

 Deliver me from blood, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall extol thy justice. 

 

 


17

 

 O Lord, thou wilt open my lips: and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 

 

 


18

 

 For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted. 

 

 


19

 

 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 

 

 


20

 

 Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good will with Sion; that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up. 

 

 


21

 

 Then shalt thou accept the sacrifice of justice, oblations and whole burnt offerings: then shall they lay calves upon thy altar.
