Psalms Chapter 25 |
אO Lord, I set my hope on You;
ב 2my God, in You I trust;
may I not be disappointed,
may my enemies not exult over me.
ג 3O let none who look to You be disappointed;
let the faithless be disappointed, empty-handed.
ד 4Let me know Your paths, O Lord;
teach me Your ways;
ה ו 5guide me in Your true way and teach me,
for You are God, my deliverer;
it is You I look to at all times.
ז 6O Lord, be mindful of Your compassion
and Your faithfulness;
they are old as time.
ח 7Be not mindful of my youthful sins and transgressions;
in keeping with Your faithfulness consider what is in my favor,
as befits Your goodness, O Lord.
ט 8Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore He shows sinners the way.
י 9He guides the lowly in the right path,
and teaches the lowly His way.
כ 10All the Lord’s paths are steadfast love
for those who keep the decrees of His covenant.
ל 11As befits Your name, O Lord,
pardon my iniquity though it be great.
מ 12Whoever fears the Lord,
he shall be shown what path to choose.
נ 13He shall live a happy life,
and his children shall inherit the land.
ס 14The counsel of the Lord is for those who fear Him;
to them He makes known His covenant.
ע 15My eyes are ever toward the Lord,
for He will loose my feet from the net.
פ 16Turn to me, have mercy on me,
for I am alone and afflicted.
צ 17My deep distress increases;
deliver me from my straits.
ר 18Look at my affliction and suffering,
and forgive all my sins.
19See how numerous my enemies are,
and how unjustly they hate me!
ש 20Protect me and save me;
let me not be disappointed,
for I have sought refuge in You.
ת 21May integrity and uprightness watch over me,
for I look to You.
ֶ 22O God, redeem Israel
from all its distress.
