Psalm 25


Of David.

Lord, I appeal to you.D,l

My God, I trust in you.

Do not let me be disgraced;m

do not let my enemies gloat over me.n

No one who waits for you

will be disgraced;o

those who act treacherously without cause

will be disgraced.p

Make your ways known to me, Lord;

teach me your paths.q

Guide me in your truth and teach me,r

for you are the God of my salvation;s

I wait for you all day long.t

Remember, Lord, your compassion

and your faithful love,

for they have existed from antiquity.E,u

Do not remember the sins of my youthv

or my acts of rebellion;w

in keeping with your faithful love, remember me

because of your goodness, Lord.x

The Lord is good and upright;y

therefore he shows sinners the way.z

He leads the humble in what is rightaa

and teaches them his way.ab

10 All the Lord’s ways show faithful love and truth

to those who keep his covenant and decrees.ac

11 Lord, for the sake of your name,

forgive my iniquity, for it is immense.ad

12 Who is this person who fears the Lord?ae

He will show him the way he should choose.af

13 He will live a good life,

and his descendants will inherit the land.F,ag

14 The secret counsel of the Lord

is for those who fear him,

and he reveals his covenant to them.ah

15 My eyes are always on the Lord,

for he will pull my feet out of the net.ai

16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,

for I am alone and afflicted.aj

17 The distresses of my heart increase;G,ak

bring me out of my sufferings.al

18 Consider my affliction and trouble,am

and forgive all my sins.an

19 Consider my enemies; they are numerous,ao

and they hate me violently.ap

20 Guard me and rescue me;a

do not let me be disgraced,

for I take refuge in you.b

21 May integrity and what is right

watch over me,

for I wait for you.c

22 God, redeem Israel, from all its distresses.d


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
