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.
