1. <[A Psalm] of David.> Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

2. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

3. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

4. Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

5. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

6. Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] ever of old.

7. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

8. Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

9. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

10. All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

11. For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great.

12. What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose.

13. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14. The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

15. Mine eyes [are] ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.

16. Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am] desolate and afflicted.

17. The troubles of my heart are enlarged: [O] bring thou me out of my distresses.

18. Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

19. Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

20. O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

21. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

22. Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
