CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Deliver me from all my transgressions - Recognising, as in Psalm 38:3-5, his sins as the source of all his troubles and sorrows. If his transgressions were forgiven, he felt assured that his trouble would be removed.

"And we all do Fade as a Leaf, and Our Iniquities, Like the Wind, have Taken us Away. "
You make us a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and a derision to those around us.
Hide Your face from my sins And blot out all my iniquities.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; Then my tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
Remember this, O LORD, that the enemy has reviled, And a foolish people has spurned Your name.
We have become a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us.
Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name's sake.
Take away reproach and contempt from me, For I observe Your testimonies.
