25:1 <Of David.> To you, O Lord, my soul is lifted up.
25:2 O my God, I have put my faith in you, let me not be shamed; let not my haters be glorying over me.
25:3 Let no servant of yours be put to shame; may those be shamed who are false without cause.
25:4 Make your steps clear to me, O Lord; give me knowledge of your ways.
25:5 Be my guide and teacher in the true way; for you are the God of my salvation; I am waiting for your word all the day.
25:6 O Lord, keep in mind your pity and your mercies; for they have been from the earliest times.
25:7 Do not keep in mind my sins when I was young, or my wrongdoing: let your memory of me be full of mercy, O Lord, because of your righteousness.
25:8 Good and upright is the Lord: so he will be the teacher of sinners in the way.
25:9 He will be an upright guide to the poor in spirit: he will make his way clear to them.
25:10 All the ways of the Lord are mercy and good faith for those who keep his agreement and his witness.
25:11 Because of your name, O Lord, let me have forgiveness for my sin, which is very great.
25:12 If a man has the fear of the Lord, the Lord will be his teacher in the way of his pleasure.
25:13 His soul will be full of good things, and his seed will have the earth for its heritage.
25:14 The secret of the Lord is with those in whose hearts is the fear of him; he will make his agreement clear to them.
25:15 My eyes are turned to the Lord at all times; for he will take my feet out of the net.
25:16 Be turned to me, and have mercy on me; for I am troubled and have no helper.
25:17 The troubles of my heart are increased: O take me out of my sorrows.
25:18 Give thought to my grief and my pain; and take away all my sins.
25:19 See how those who are against me are increased, for bitter is their hate of me.
25:20 O keep my soul, and take me out of danger: let me not be shamed, for I have put my faith in you.
25:21 For my clean and upright ways keep me safe, because my hope is in you.
25:22 Give Israel salvation, O God, out of all his troubles.
