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.
