Psalm 25
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1I will lift up my soul to you, LORD.1To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2I trust in you, my God, do not let me be ashamed; do not let my enemies triumph over me.2O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.
3Indeed, no one who waits on you will be ashamed, but those who offend for no reason will be put to shame.3Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
4Cause me to understand your ways, LORD; teach me your paths.4Make me to know your ways, O 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.5Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
6Remember, LORD, your tender mercies and your gracious love; indeed, they are eternal!6Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
7Do not remember my youthful sins and transgressions; but remember me in light of your gracious love, in light of your goodness, LORD.7Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!
8The LORD is good and just; therefore he will teach sinners concerning the way.8Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in 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 the humble 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 paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my sin, for it is great.11For your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great.
12Who is the man who fears the LORD? God will teach him the path he should choose.12Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
13He will experience good things; his descendants will inherit the earth.13His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land.
14The intimate counsel of the LORD is for those who fear him so they may know his covenant.14The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.
15My eyes look to the LORD continuously, because he's the one who releases my feet from the trap. 15My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck 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 lonely and afflicted.
17The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!17The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses.
18Look upon my distress and affliction; forgive all my sins.18Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins.
19Look how many enemies I have gained! They hate me with a vicious hatred.19Consider how many are my foes, and with what violent hatred they hate me.
20Preserve my life and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, because I take refuge in you.20Oh, guard my soul, and deliver me! Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21Integrity and justice will preserve me, because I wait on you.21May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for you.
22Redeem Israel, God, from all its troubles.22Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
