Psalm 25

Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon.

A Psalm of David.

1To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I trust,
Do not let me be ashamed;
Do not let my enemies exult over me.
Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed;
[a]Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

Make me know Your ways, O Lord;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
For You I wait all the day.
Remember, O Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses,
For they have been [b]from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your lovingkindness remember me,
For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord;
Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the [c]humble in justice,
And He teaches the [d]humble His way.
10 All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth
To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
11 For Your name’s sake, O Lord,
Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

12 Who is the man who fears the Lord?
He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
13 His soul will abide in [e]prosperity,
And his [f]descendants will inherit the [g]land.
14 The [h]secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him,
[i]And He will make them know His covenant.
15 My eyes are continually toward the Lord,
For He will [j]pluck my feet out of the net.

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am lonely and afflicted.
17 [k]The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
Bring me out of my distresses.
18 Look upon my affliction and my [l]trouble,
And forgive all my sins.
19 Look upon my enemies, for they are many,
And they hate me with violent hatred.
20 Guard my soul and deliver me;
Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
For I wait for You.
22 Redeem Israel, O God,
Out of all his troubles.

Psalm 25

Psalm 25

A psalm of David.

In you, Lord my God, I put my trust.
    I trust in you.
Don’t let me be put to shame.
    Don’t let my enemies win the battle over me.
Those who put their hope in you
    will never be put to shame.
But those who lie to other people for no reason
    will be put to shame.

Lord, show me your ways.
    Teach me how to follow you.
Guide me in your truth. Teach me.
    You are God my Savior.
    I put my hope in you all day long.
Lord, remember your great mercy and love.
    You have shown them to your people for a long time.
Don’t remember the sins I committed when I was young.
    Don’t remember how often I refused to obey you.
Remember me because you love me.
    Lord, you are good.

The Lord is honest and good.
    He teaches sinners to walk in his ways.
He shows those who aren’t proud how to do what is right.
    He teaches them his ways.
10 All the Lord’s ways are loving and faithful
    toward those who obey what his covenant commands.
11 Lord, be true to your name.
    Forgive my sin, even though it is great.
12 Who are the people who have respect for the Lord?
    God will teach them the ways they should choose.
13 Things will always go well for them.
    Their children will be given the land.
14 The Lord shares his plans with those who have respect for him.
    He makes his covenant known to them.
15 My eyes always look to the Lord.
    He alone can set my feet free from the trap.

16 Turn to me and help me.
    I am lonely and hurting.
17 Take away the troubles of my heart.
    Set me free from my great pain.
18 Look at how I’m hurting! See how much I suffer!
    Take away all my sins.
19 Look at how many enemies I have!
    See how terrible their hatred is for me!
20 Guard my life. Save me.
    Don’t let me be put to shame.
    I go to you for safety.
21 May my honest and good life keep me safe.
    Lord, I have put my hope in you.

22 God, set Israel free
    from all their troubles!
