Psalm 25
New Living TranslationNew American Standard Bible 1995
1O LORD, I give my life to you.1A Psalm of David. To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.2O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me.
3No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.3Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.
4Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.4Make me know Your ways, O 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.5Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
6Remember, O LORD, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past.6Remember, O LORD, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses, For they have been from of old.
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 the sins of my youth or my transgressions; According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O LORD.
8The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray.8Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
9He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.9He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches 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 are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
11For the honor of your name, O LORD, forgive my many, many sins.11For Your name's sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, 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? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
13They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.13His soul will abide in prosperity, And his descendants will inherit the land.
14The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.14The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant.
15My eyes are always on the LORD, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.15My eyes are continually toward the LORD, For He will pluck my feet out of the net.
16Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress.16Turn to me and be gracious to me, For I am lonely and afflicted.
17My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all!17The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses.
18Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.18Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.
19See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me!19Look upon my enemies, for they are many, And they hate me with violent hatred.
20Protect me! Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.20Guard my soul and deliver me; Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
21May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you.21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.
22O God, ransom Israel from all its troubles.22Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all his troubles.
