Chap. 25
1 Of David. Unto thee, O Jehovah, do I lift up my soul.
2 My God, in thee have I trusted; let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3 Yea, all those who wait on thee shall not be ashamed; they shall be ashamed who deal falsely without a cause.
4 Make me to know thy ways, O Jehovah; teach me thy paths.
5 Lead me in thy truth and teach me, for thou [art] the God of my salvation; for thee have I waited all the day.
6 Remember thy tender mercies, O Jehovah, and thy kindness, for they [are] from everlasting.
7 The sins of my youth and my transgressions remember thou not; according to thy mercy remember thou me, for thy goodness sake, O Jehovah.
8 Good and upright [is] Jehovah; therefore he teacheth sinners in the way.
9 He guideth the meek in judgment and he teacheth the meek his way.
10 All the paths of Jehovah [are] mercy and truth to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11 For thy name's sake, O Jehovah, thou hast even pardoned mine iniquity, for it [is] great.
12 Who [is] this, the man that feareth Jehovah? He teacheth him in the way he chooseth.
13 His soul abideth in goodness, and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of Jehovah [is] for those who fear him, and his covenant, to instruct them.
15 Mine eyes [are] continually unto Jehovah, for he bringeth forth my feet from a net.
16 Turn thyself unto me and be gracious to me, for I [am] desolate and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart have been enlarged; bring me out of mine afflictions.
18 Look upon mine affliction and my sorrow, and forgive all my sins.
19 Look upon mine enemies, for they are many; and [with] a hatred of violence they have hated me.
20 Keep my soul and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I have trusted in thee.
21 Integrity and uprightness shall preserve me, for I have waited for thee.
22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all his distresses.
