Psalm 25
New King James VersionNET Bible
1[i]A Psalm[/i] of David. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.1By David. O LORD, I come before you in prayer.
2O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me.2My God, I trust in you. Please do not let me be humiliated; do not let my enemies triumphantly rejoice over me!
3Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.3Certainly none who rely on you will be humiliated. Those who deal in treachery will be thwarted and humiliated.
4Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.4Make me understand 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.5Guide me into your truth and teach me. For you are the God who delivers me; on you I rely all day long.
6Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.6Remember your compassionate and faithful deeds, O LORD, for you have always acted in this manner.
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 hold against me the sins of my youth or my rebellious acts! Because you are faithful to me, extend to me your favor, O LORD!
8Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.8The LORD is both kind and fair; that is why he teaches sinners the right way to live.
9The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.9May he show the humble what is right! May he teach the humble his way!
10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.10The LORD always proves faithful and reliable to those who follow the demands of his covenant.
11For Your name’s sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.11For the sake of your reputation, O LORD, forgive my sin, because it is great.
12Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.12The LORD shows his faithful followers the way they should live.
13He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth.13They experience his favor; their descendants inherit the land.
14The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.14The LORD's loyal followers receive his guidance, and he reveals his covenantal demands to them.
15My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.15I continually look to the LORD for help, for he will free my feet from the enemy's net.
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 alone and oppressed!
17The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses!17Deliver me from my distress; rescue me from my suffering!
18Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins.18See my pain and suffering! Forgive all my sins!
19Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred.19Watch my enemies, for they outnumber me; they hate me and want to harm me.
20Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.20Protect me and deliver me! Please do not let me be humiliated, for I have taken shelter in you!
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.21May integrity and godliness protect me, for I rely on you!
22Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!22O God, rescue Israel from all their distress!
