Psalm 25
New Living TranslationInternational Standard Version
1O LORD, I give my life to you.1I will lift up my soul to you, LORD.
2I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.2I trust in you, my God, do not let me be ashamed; do not let my enemies triumph over me.
3No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.3Indeed, no one who waits on you will be ashamed, but those who offend for no reason will be put to shame.
4Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.4Cause me to understand your ways, LORD; teach me your paths.
5Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.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 compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past.6Remember, LORD, your tender mercies and your gracious love; indeed, they are eternal!
7Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, 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.
8The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray.8The LORD is good and just; therefore he will teach sinners concerning the way.
9He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.9He will guide the humble to justice; he will teach the humble his way.
10The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.10All the paths of the LORD lead to gracious love and truth for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
11For the honor of your name, O LORD, forgive my many, many sins.11For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my sin, for it is great.
12Who are those who fear the LORD? He will show them the path they should choose.12Who is the man who fears the LORD? God will teach him the path he should choose.
13They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.13He will experience good things; his descendants will inherit the earth.
14The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.14The intimate counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him so they may know his covenant.
15My eyes are always on the LORD, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.15My eyes look to the LORD continuously, because he's the one who releases my feet from the trap.
16Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress.16Turn toward me and have mercy on me, for I am lonely and oppressed.
17My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all!17The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!
18Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.18Look upon my distress and affliction; forgive all my sins.
19See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me!19Look how many enemies I have gained! They hate me with a vicious hatred.
20Protect me! Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.20Preserve my life and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, because I take refuge in you.
21May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you.21Integrity and justice will preserve me, because I wait on you.
22O God, ransom Israel from all its troubles.22Redeem Israel, God, from all its troubles.
