King James Version

Psalm 51

1Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

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

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 thy free 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 shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a 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 shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

诗篇 51

祈求上帝赦免

大卫与拔示芭通奸后,先知拿单来找他,他作了此诗,交给乐长。

1上帝啊,求你怜悯我,
因为你的慈爱永不改变;
求你除去我的过犯,
因为你有无限的怜悯。
求你洗净我的罪过,
清除我的罪恶。
我知道自己的过犯,
我的罪恶一直萦绕眼前。
我犯罪得罪了你,
唯独得罪了你,
做了你看为邪恶的事,
所以你对我的责备是正当的,
你对我的审判是公正的。
我生来就是个罪人,
在母腹成胎的时候就有罪。
你所喜爱的是内心的诚实,
求你使我内心有智慧。
求你用牛膝草洁净我的罪,
使我干净;
求你洗净我,使我比雪更白。
求你让我听到欢喜快乐的声音,
让我这被你压碎的骨头可以欢跳。
求你饶恕我的罪过,
除去我一切的罪恶。
10 上帝啊,
求你为我造一颗纯洁的心,
使我里面重新有正直的灵。
11 不要丢弃我,
使我离开你,
也不要从我身上收回你的圣灵。
12 求你让我重新享受蒙你拯救的喜乐,
赐我一颗乐意顺服你的心灵。
13 这样,我就能把你的法则教导罪人,
使他们归向你。
14 拯救我的上帝啊,
求你赦免我杀人流血的罪,
使我颂扬你的公义。
15 主啊,求你开我的口,
我要向你发出赞美。
16 你不喜欢祭物,
否则我会献上,
你也不喜爱燔祭。
17 你所要的祭是忧伤的心灵。
上帝啊,你必不轻看忧伤痛悔的心。
18 求你恩待锡安,重建耶路撒冷的城墙。
19 那时,你必悦纳诚心献上的祭物、燔祭和全牲燔祭,
人们必把公牛献在你的坛上。
