1Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. 2Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. 3For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. 4Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just.#51:4 Greek version reads and you will win your case in court. Compare Rom 3:4. 5For I was born a sinner— yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.
