Psalms 25 . Ad te, Domine,
UNTO thee, O LORD, will I lift up my soul; my God, I have put
my trust in thee: * O let me not be confounded, neither let mine
enemies triumph over me.
2 For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed; * but
such as transgress without a cause shall be put to confusion.
3 Show me thy ways, O LORD, * and teach me thy paths.
4 Lead me forth in thy truth, and learn me: * for thou art the
God of my salvation; in thee hath been my hope all the day long.
5 Call to remembrance, O LORD, thy tender mercies, * and thy
loving-kindnesses, which have been ever of old.
6 O remember not the sins and offences of my youth; * but according
to thy mercy think thou upon me, O LORD, for thy goodness.
7 Gracious and righteous is the LORD; * therefore, will he teach
sinners in the way.
8 Them that are meek shall he guide in judgment; * and such as
are gentle, them shall he learn his way.
9 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, * unto such
as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
10 For thy Name's sake, O LORD, * be merciful unto my sin; for
it is great.
11 What man is he that feareth the LORD? * him shall he teach
in the way that he shall choose.
12 His soul shall dwell at ease, * and his seed shall inherit
13 The secret of the LORD is among them that fear him; * and
he will show them his covenant.
14 Mine eyes are ever looking unto the LORD; * for he shall pluck
my feet out of the net.
15 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; * for I am desolate,
and in misery.
16 The sorrows of my heart are enlarged: * O bring thou me out
of my troubles.
17 Look upon my adversity and misery, * and forgive me all my
18 Consider mine enemies, how many they are; * and they bear
a tyrannous hate against me.
19 O keep my soul, and deliver me: * let me not be confounded,
for I have put my trust in thee.
20 Let perfectness and righteous dealing wait upon me; * for
my hope hath been in thee.
21 Deliver Israel, O God, * out of all his troubles.
