Psalm 25
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

To You I Lift Up My Soul

1To David. To thee, O Jehovah, I will lift up my soul.

2My God, in thee I trusted, I shall not be ashamed: mine enemies shall not exult over me.

3Also all awaiting thee shall not be ashamed: they transgressing emptily shall be ashamed.

4O Jehovah, cause me to know thy ways; teach me thy paths.

5Cause me to tread in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art God saving me; on thee I waited all the day.

6Remember thy compassions, O Jehovah, and thy mercies; for they are from forever.

7The sins of my youth and my transgressions thou wilt not remember: according to thy mercy remember thou for me for sake of thy goodness, O Jehovah.

8Good and upright is Jehovah: for this he will teach the sinning in the way.

9He will cause the humble to trend in judgment, and he will teach the humble the way.

10All the paths of Jehovah are mercy and truth to those watching his covenant and his testimonies.

11For sake of thy name, O Jehovah, and thou forgavest to mine iniquity; for it was much.

12Who this man fearing Jehovah? he will teach him in the way he shall choose.

13His soul shall lodge in good, and his seed shall inherit the earth.

14The secret of Jehovah to them fearing him; and his covenant he will cause them to know.

15Mine eyes are always to Jehovah, for he will bring forth my feet from the net.

16Turn to me and pity me, for I alone and afflicted.

17The straits of my heart were enlarged: bring me out from my distresses.

18See mine affliction and my labor, and let go to all my sins.

19See mine enemies, for they were many, and they hated me with the hatred of violence.

20Watch my soul and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I put my trust in thee.

21Integrity and uprightness shall watch me; for I waited for thee.

22Redeem Israel, O God, from all his straits.
