do not let me be put to shame;
do not let my enemies exult over me.
let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
teach me your paths.
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all day long.
for they have been from of old.
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
and teaches the humble his way.
for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
pardon my guilt, for it is great.
He will teach them the way that they should choose.
