Psalm 25
International Standard VersionChristian Standard Bible
1I will lift up my soul to you, LORD.1LORD, I appeal to you.
2I trust in you, my God, do not let me be ashamed; do not let my enemies triumph over me.2My God, I trust in you. Do not let me be disgraced; do not let my enemies gloat over me.
3Indeed, no one who waits on you will be ashamed, but those who offend for no reason will be put to shame.3No one who waits for you will be disgraced; those who act treacherously without cause will be disgraced.
4Cause me to understand your ways, LORD; teach me your paths.4Make your ways known to me, LORD; teach me your paths.
5Guide me in your truth and teach me; for you are the God who delivers me. All day long I have waited for you.5Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; I wait for you all day long.
6Remember, LORD, your tender mercies and your gracious love; indeed, they are eternal!6Remember, LORD, your compassion and your faithful love, for they have existed from antiquity.
7Do not remember my youthful sins and transgressions; but remember me in light of your gracious love, in light of your goodness, LORD.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.
8The LORD is good and just; therefore he will teach sinners concerning the way.8The LORD is good and upright; therefore he shows sinners the way.
9He will guide the humble to justice; he will teach the humble his way.9He leads the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
10All the paths of the LORD lead to gracious love and truth for those who keep his covenant and his decrees. 10All the LORD's ways show faithful love and truth to those who keep his covenant and decrees.
11For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my sin, for it is great.11LORD, for the sake of your name, forgive my iniquity, for it is immense.
12Who is the man who fears the LORD? God will teach him the path he should choose.12Who is this person who fears the LORD? He will show him the way he should choose.
13He will experience good things; his descendants will inherit the earth.13He will live a good life, and his descendants will inherit the land.
14The intimate counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him so they may know his covenant.14The secret counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he reveals his covenant to them.
15My eyes look to the LORD continuously, because he's the one who releases my feet from the trap. 15My eyes are always on the LORD, for he will pull my feet out of the net.
16Turn toward me and have mercy on me, for I am lonely and oppressed.16Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am alone and afflicted.
17The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!17The distresses of my heart increase; bring me out of my sufferings.
18Look upon my distress and affliction; forgive all my sins.18Consider my affliction and trouble, and forgive all my sins.
19Look how many enemies I have gained! They hate me with a vicious hatred.19Consider my enemies; they are numerous, and they hate me violently.
20Preserve my life and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, because I take refuge in you.20Guard me and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21Integrity and justice will preserve me, because I wait on you.21May integrity and what is right watch over me, for I wait for you.
22Redeem Israel, God, from all its troubles.22God, redeem Israel, from all its distresses.
