Psalms 51:1-19

1 For the end, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, when he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the multitude of Your compassions, blot out my transgression. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I am conscious of my iniquity; and my sin is continually before me. 4 Against You alone have I sinned, and done evil before You; that You might be justified in Your words, and might overcome when You are judged. 5 For behold, I was conceived in iniquities, and in sins did my mother conceive me. 6 For behold, You love truth; You have manifested to me the secret and hidden things of Your wisdom. 7 You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be purified; You shall wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 8 You shall cause me to hear gladness and joy; my afflicted bones shall rejoice. 9 Turn away Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a steadfast spirit in my inward parts. 11 Cast me not away from Your presence; and remove not Your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation; establish me with Your directing Spirit. 13 Then will I teach transgressors Your ways; and ungodly men shall turn to You. 14 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; and my tongue shall joyfully declare Your righteousness. 15 O Lord, You shall open my lips; and my mouth shall declare Your praise. 16 For if You desired sacrifice, I would have given it; You will not take pleasure in whole burnt offerings. 17 Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit; a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. 18 Do good, O Lord, to Zion in Your good pleasure; and let the walls of Jerusalem be built. 19 Then shall You be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, offering, and whole burnt sacrifices; then shall they offer calves upon Your altar.
