Psalms 25 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

A Psalm of David.

25:1Unto thee, O Jehovah, do I lift up my soul.

25:2O my God, in thee have I trusted,

Let me not be put to shame;

Let not mine enemies triumph over me.

25:3Yea, none that wait for thee shall be put to shame:

They shall be put to shame that deal treacherously without cause.

25:4Show me thy ways, O Jehovah;

Teach me thy paths.

25:5Guide me in thy truth, and teach me;

For thou art the God of my salvation;

For thee do I wait all the day.

25:6Remember, O Jehovah, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness;

For they have been ever of old.

25:7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:

According to thy lovingkindness remember thou me,

For thy goodness' sake, O Jehovah.

25:8Good and upright is Jehovah:

Therefore will he instruct sinners in the way.

25:9The meek will he guide in justice;

And the meek will he teach his way.

25:10All the paths of Jehovah are lovingkindness and truth

Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

25:11For thy name's sake, O Jehovah,

Pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.

25:12What man is he that feareth Jehovah?

Him shall he instruct in the way that he shall choose.

25:13His soul shall dwell at ease;

And his seed shall inherit the land.

25:14The friendship of Jehovah is with them that fear him;

And he will show them his covenant.

25:15Mine eyes are ever toward Jehovah;

For he will pluck my feet out of the net.

25:16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me;

For I am desolate and afflicted.

25:17The troubles of my heart are enlarged:

Oh bring thou me out of my distresses.

25:18Consider mine affliction and my travail;

And forgive all my sins.

25:19Consider mine enemies, for they are many;

And they hate me with cruel hatred.

25:20Oh keep my soul, and deliver me:

Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in thee.

25:21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,

For I wait for thee.

25:22Redeem Israel, O God,

Out all of his troubles.
