Psalm 25 New American Standard Bible

A Prayer for Guidance, Pardon and Protection

25 1  To You, O Lord , I lift up my soul . 2  O my God , in You I trust , Do not let me be ashamed ; Do not let my enemies exult over me. 3  Indeed , none e of those who wait for You will be ashamed ; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed . 4  Make me know Your ways , O Lord ; Teach me Your paths . 5  Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation ; For You I wait all the day . 6  Remember , O Lord , Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses , For they have been from of old . 7  Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions ; According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness' sake , O Lord .

8  Good and upright is the Lord ; Therefore e He instructs sinners in the way . 9  He leads the humble in justice , And He teaches the humble His way . 10  All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies . 11  For Your name's sake , O Lord , Pardon my iniquity , for it is great . 12  Who is the man who fears the Lord ? He will instruct him in the way he should choose . 13  His soul will abide in prosperity , And his descendants will inherit the land . 14  The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant .

15  My eyes are continually toward the Lord , For He will pluck my feet out of the net . 16  Turn to me and be gracious to me, For I am lonely and afflicted . 17  The troubles of my heart are enlarged ; Bring me out of my distresses . 18  Look upon my affliction and my trouble , And forgive all my sins . 19  Look upon my enemies , for they are many , And they hate me with violent hatred . 20  Guard my soul and deliver me; Do not let me be ashamed , for I take refuge in You. 21  Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. 22  Redeem Israel , O God , Out of all his troubles .
