Psalm 25
Christian Standard BibleNew Living Translation
1LORD, I appeal to you.1O LORD, I give my life to you.
2My God, I trust in you. Do not let me be disgraced; do not let my enemies gloat over me.2I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
3No one who waits for you will be disgraced; those who act treacherously without cause will be disgraced.3No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
4Make your ways known to me, LORD; teach me your paths.4Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.
5Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; I wait for you all day long.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.
6Remember, LORD, your compassion and your faithful love, for they have existed from antiquity.6Remember, O LORD, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past.
7Do not remember the sins of my youth or my acts of rebellion; in keeping with your faithful love, remember me because of your goodness, LORD.7Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O LORD.
8The LORD is good and upright; therefore he shows sinners the way.8The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
9He leads the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.9He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.
10All the LORD's ways show faithful love and truth to those who keep his covenant and decrees.10The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.
11LORD, for the sake of your name, forgive my iniquity, for it is immense.11For the honor of your name, O LORD, forgive my many, many sins.
12Who is this person who fears the LORD? He will show him the way he should choose.12Who are those who fear the LORD? He will show them the path they should choose.
13He will live a good life, and his descendants will inherit the land.13They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.
14The secret counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he reveals his covenant to them.14The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.
15My eyes are always on the LORD, for he will pull my feet out of the net.15My eyes are always on the LORD, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
16Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am alone and afflicted.16Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress.
17The distresses of my heart increase; bring me out of my sufferings.17My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all!
18Consider my affliction and trouble, and forgive all my sins.18Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.
19Consider my enemies; they are numerous, and they hate me violently.19See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me!
20Guard me and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.20Protect me! Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.
21May integrity and what is right watch over me, for I wait for you.21May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you.
22God, redeem Israel, from all its distresses.22O God, ransom Israel from all its troubles.
