Psalm 25
New King James VersionEnglish Standard Version
1[i]A Psalm[/i] of David. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.1To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.2O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.
3Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.3Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
4Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.4Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
5Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.5Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
6Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.6Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
7Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD.7Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!
8Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.8Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
9The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.9He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.
10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.10All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11For Your name’s sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.11For your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great.
12Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.12Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
13He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth.13His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land.
14The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.14The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.
15My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.15My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
16Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted.16Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.
17The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses!17The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses.
18Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins.18Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins.
19Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred.19Consider how many are my foes, and with what violent hatred they hate me.
20Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.20Oh, guard my soul, and deliver me! Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.21May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for you.
22Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!22Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
