Chapter 51

1

 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 

2

 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 

3

 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever before me. 

4

 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest. 

5

 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 

6

 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom. 

7

 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 

8

 Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] thou hast broken may rejoice. 

9

 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 

10

 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 

11

 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 

12

 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit. 

13

 [Then] will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. 

14

 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: [and] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. 

15

 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. 

16

 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give [it]: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 

17

 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 

18

 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 

19

 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
