Chapter 51

 

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David; when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1

Have mercy upon me, O Elohim, according to thy lovingkindness: According to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2

Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.

3

For I know my transgressions; And my sin is ever before me.

4

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, And done that which is evil in thy sight; That thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, And be clear when thou judgest.

5

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity; And in sin did my mother conceive me.

6

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts; And in the hidden part thou wilt make me to know wisdom.

7

Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8

Make me to hear joy and gladness, That the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9

Hide thy face from my sins, And blot out all mine iniquities.

10

Create in me a clean heart, O Elohim; And renew a right spirit within me.

11

Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy holy Spirit from me.

12

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; And uphold me with a willing spirit.

13

Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; And sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O Elohim, thou Elohim of my salvation; And my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15

O Yahweh, open thou my lips; And my mouth shall show forth thy praise.

16

For thou delightest not in sacrifice; else would I give it: Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

17

The sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit: A broken and contrite heart, O Elohim, thou wilt not despise.

18

Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: Build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19

Then will thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, In burnt-offering and in whole burnt-offering: Then will they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
