Psalm 25

1 In you, O Lord my God, have I put my hope:
    in you have I trusted, let me not be ashamed, nor let my enemies triumph over me.
2 Let none who wait for you be put to shame:
    but let those that break faith be confounded and gain nothing.
3 Show me your ways, O Lord:
    and teach me your paths.
4 Lead me in the ways of your truth, and teach me:
    for you are the God of my salvation.
5 In you have I hoped all the day long:
    because of your goodness, O Lord.
6 Call to mind your compassion and your loving-kindness:
    for they are from of old.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:
    but according to your mercy think on me.
8 Good and upright is the Lord:
    therefore will he direct sinners in the way.
9 The meek he will guide in the path of justice:
    and teach the humble his ways.
10 All the paths of the Lord are faithful and true:
    for those who keep his covenant and his commandments.
11 For your name's sake, O Lord:
    be merciful to my sin, though it is great.
12 Who are they that fear the Lord?:
    them will the Lord direct in the way that they should choose.
13 Their souls shall dwell at ease:
    and their children shall inherit the land.
14 The confidences of God belong to those that fear him:
    and his covenant shall give them understanding.
15 My eyes are ever looking to the Lord:
    for he will bring my feet out of the net.
16 Turn your face toward me and be gracious:
    for I am alone and in misery.
17 O free my heart from pain:
    and bring me out of my distress.
18 Give heed to my affliction and adversity:
    and forgive me all my sins.
19 Consider my enemies, how many they are:
    and they bear a violent hate against me.
20 O keep my life, and deliver me:
    put me not to shame, for I come to you for refuge.
21 Let innocence and integrity be my guard:
    for in you have I hoped.
22 O God, deliver Israel:
    out of all their tribulation.
