Psalm 25a

Of David.

In you, Lord my God,

I put my trust.z

I trust in you;a

do not let me be put to shame,

nor let my enemies triumph over me.

No one who hopes in you

will ever be put to shame,b

but shame will come on those

who are treacherousc without cause.

Show me your ways, Lord,

teach me your paths.d

Guide me in your truthe and teach me,

for you are God my Savior,f

and my hope is in youg all day long.

Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,h

for they are from of old.

Do not remember the sins of my youthi

and my rebellious ways;j

according to your lovek remember me,

for you, Lord, are good.l

Good and uprightm is the Lord;

therefore he instructsn sinners in his ways.

He guideso the humble in what is right

and teaches themp his way.

10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithfulq

toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.r

11 For the sake of your name,s Lord,

forgivet my iniquity,u though it is great.

12 Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?v

He will instruct them in the waysw they should choose.b

13 They will spend their days in prosperity,x

and their descendants will inherit the land.y

14 The Lord confidesz in those who fear him;

he makes his covenant knowna to them.

15 My eyes are ever on the Lord,b

for only he will release my feet from the snare.c

16 Turn to med and be gracious to me,e

for I am lonelyf and afflicted.

17 Relieve the troublesg of my heart

and free me from my anguish.h

18 Look on my afflictioni and my distressj

and take away all my sins.k

19 See how numerous are my enemiesl

and how fiercely they hate me!m

20 Guard my lifen and rescue me;o

do not let me be put to shame,p

for I take refugeq in you.

21 May integrityr and uprightnesss protect me,

because my hope, Lord,c is in you.t

22 Deliver Israel,u O God,

from all their troubles!
