Psalm 51

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.

1. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness:

according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity,

and cleanse me from my sin.

3. For I acknowledge my transgressions:

and my sin is ever before me.

4. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,

and done this evil in thy sight:

that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest,

and be clear when thou judgest.

5. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity;

and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts:

and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:

wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8. Make me to hear joy and gladness;

that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9. Hide thy face from my sins,

and blot out all mine iniquities.

10. Create in me a clean heart, O God;

and renew a right spirit within me.

11. Cast me not away from thy presence;

and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;

and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways;

and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation:

and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15. O Lord, open thou my lips;

and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it:

thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:

a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion:

build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19. Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,

with burnt offering and whole burnt offering:

then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
