Psalm 51
A Faithful Version

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

1Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion, blot out my transgressions.

2Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin,

3For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

4Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done evil in Your sight, that You might be justified when You speak and be in the right when You judge.

5Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden part You shall make me to know wisdom.

7Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8Make me to hear joy and gladness that the bones which You have broken may rejoice.

9Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.

10Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

11Cast me not away from Your presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.

12Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and let Your free spirit uphold me.

13Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall turn back to You.

14Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, O God, O God of my salvation, then my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.

15O LORD, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare Your praise,

16For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not take pleasure in burnt offering.

17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

18Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.

19Then shall You be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering; then they shall offer bulls upon Your altar.
