PSALM 25 Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon. A Psalm of David. 25 1To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 2O my God, in You I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me. 3Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; [W]Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed. 4Make me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. 5Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day. 6Remember, O Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses, For they have been [X]from of old. 7Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. 8Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. 9He leads the [Y]humble in justice, And He teaches the [Z]humble His way. 10All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. 11For Your name's sake, O Lord, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. 12Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. 13His soul will abide in [A]prosperity, And his [B]descendants will inherit the [C]land. 14The [D]secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, [E]And He will make them know His covenant. 15My eyes are continually toward the Lord, For He will [F]pluck my feet out of the net. 16Turn to me and be gracious to me, For I am lonely and afflicted. 17[G]The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses. 18Look upon my affliction and my [H]trouble, And forgive all my sins. 19Look upon my enemies, for they are many, And they hate me with violent hatred. 20Guard my soul and deliver me; Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You. 21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. 22Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all his troubles.
