1[For the choirmaster Of David When the prophet Nathan had come to him because he had gone toBathsheba] Have mercy on me, O God, in your faithful love, in your great tenderness wipe away my offences; 2wash me clean from my guilt, purify me from my sin. 3For I am wel aware of my offences, my sin is constantly in mind. 4Against you, you alone, I have sinned, I have done what you see to be wrong, that you may show yoursaving justice when you pass sentence, and your victory may appear when you give judgement, 5remember, I was born guilty, a sinner from the moment of conception. 6But you delight in sincerity of heart, and in secret you teach me wisdom. 7Purify me with hyssop till I am clean, wash me til I am whiter than snow. 8Let me hear the sound of joy and gladness, and the bones you have crushed wil dance. 9Turn away your face from my sins, and wipe away al my guilt. 10God, create in me a clean heart, renew within me a resolute spirit, 11do not thrust me away from your presence, do not take away from me your spirit of holiness. 12Give me back the joy of your salvation, sustain in me a generous spirit. 13I shal teach the wicked your paths, and sinners will return to you. 14Deliver me from bloodshed, God, God of my salvation, and my tongue wil acclaim your savingjustice. 15Lord, open my lips, and my mouth wil speak out your praise. 16Sacrifice gives you no pleasure, burnt offering you do not desire. 17Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken, contrite heart you never scorn. 18In your graciousness do good to Zion, rebuild the wal s of Jerusalem. 19Then you wil delight in upright sacrifices,-burnt offerings and whole oblations -- and young bul s will be offered on your altar.
