Psalm 25
New King James VersionInternational Standard Version
1[i]A Psalm[/i] of David. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.1I will lift up my soul to you, LORD.
2O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.2I trust in you, my God, do not let me be ashamed; do not let my enemies triumph over me.
3Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.3Indeed, no one who waits on you will be ashamed, but those who offend for no reason will be put to shame.
4Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.4Cause me to understand your ways, 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.5Guide me in your truth and teach me; for you are the God who delivers me. All day long I have waited for you.
6Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.6Remember, LORD, your tender mercies and your gracious love; indeed, they are eternal!
7Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD.7Do not remember my youthful sins and transgressions; but remember me in light of your gracious love, in light of your goodness, LORD.
8Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.8The LORD is good and just; therefore he will teach sinners concerning the way.
9The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.9He will guide the humble to justice; he will teach 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 lead to gracious love and truth for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
11For Your name’s sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.11For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my sin, 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? God will teach him the path he should choose.
13He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth.13He will experience good things; his descendants will inherit the earth.
14The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.14The intimate counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him so they may know his covenant.
15My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.15My eyes look to the LORD continuously, because he's the one who releases my feet from the trap.
16Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted.16Turn toward me and have mercy on me, for I am lonely and oppressed.
17The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses!17The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!
18Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins.18Look upon my distress and affliction; forgive all my sins.
19Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred.19Look how many enemies I have gained! They hate me with a vicious hatred.
20Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.20Preserve my life and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, because I take refuge in you.
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.21Integrity and justice will preserve me, because I wait on you.
22Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!22Redeem Israel, God, from all its troubles.
