To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David aWhen Nathan the Prophet Went to Him, After He Had Gone in to Bathsheba.
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
bBlot out my transgressions.
2 cWash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
And my sin is always before me.
4 dAgainst You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil ein Your sight—
And blameless when You judge.
5 gBehold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
7 hPurge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be iwhiter than snow.
That the bones You have broken jmay rejoice.
And blot out all my iniquities.
10 kCreate in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
And do not take Your lHoly Spirit from me.
And uphold me by Your mgenerous Spirit.
And sinners shall be converted to You.
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For nYou do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 oThe sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You shall be pleased with pthe sacrifices of righteousness,
With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.
