Brenton Septuagint Translation
To You, O Lord, I Lift Up My Soul
1A Psalm of David. To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
2O my God, I have trusted in thee: let me not be confounded, neither let mine enemies laugh me to scorn.
3For none of them that wait on thee shall in any wise be ashamed: let them be ashamed that transgress without cause.
4Shew me thy ways, O Lord; and teach me thy paths.
5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art God my Saviour: and I have waited on thee all the day.
6Remember thy compassions, O Lord, and thy mercies, for they are from everlasting.
7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my sins of ignorance: remember me according to thy mercy, for thy goodness' sake, O Lord.
8Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will he instruct sinners in the way.
9The meek will he guide in judgment: the meek will he teach his ways.
10All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth to them that seek his covenant and his testimonies.
11For thy name's sake, O Lord, do thou also be merciful to my sin; for it is great.
12Who is the man that fears the Lord? he shall instruct him in the way which he has chosen.
13His soul shall dwell in prosperity; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14The Lord is the strength of them that fear him; and his covenant is to manifest truth to them.
15Mine eyes are continually to the Lord; for he shall draw my feet out of the snare.
16Look upon me, and have mercy upon me; for I am an only child and poor.
17The afflictions of my heart have been multiplied; deliver me from my distresses.
18Look upon mine affliction and my trouble; and forgive all my sins.
19Look upon mine enemies; for they have been multiplied; and they have hated me with unjust hatred.
20Keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I have hoped in thee.
21The harmless and upright joined themselves to me: for I waited for thee, O Lord.
22Deliver Israel, O God, out of all his afflictions.
