will be disgraced;#Is 49:23

will be disgraced.#Pr 2:22; Is 21:2
4Make your ways known to me, Lord;
teach me your paths.#Ex 33:13; Ps 27:11; 86:11

for you are the God of my salvation;#Ex 15:2

6Remember, Lord, your compassion
and your faithful love,
for they have existed from antiquity.#25:6 Or everlasting#Ps 98:3; 103:17
7Do not remember the sins of my youth#Jb 13:26
or my acts of rebellion;#Ps 51:1
in keeping with your faithful love, remember me
because of your goodness, Lord.#Neh 13:22
8The Lord is good and upright;#Ps 100:5; Nah 1:7
therefore he shows sinners the way.#Ps 32:8

11 Lord, for the sake of your name,
forgive my iniquity, for it is immense.#Jb 7:21; Ps 103:3; Jr 31:34
12Who is this person who fears the Lord?#Ps 31:19
He will show him the way he should choose.#Ps 37:23
13He will live a good life,
and his descendants will inherit the land.#25:13 Or earth#Ps 37:11; 69:36

is for those who fear him,
and he reveals his covenant to them.#Jn 7:17; 1Co 2:9

for he will pull my feet out of the net.#Ps 31:4; 124:7

bring me out of my sufferings.#Jr 10:19
18Consider my affliction and trouble,#Ps 31:7
and forgive all my sins.#Rm 11:27; 1Jn 3:5

do not let me be put to shame,
for I take refuge in you.#Ps 86:2
21May integrity and what is right
watch over me,
for I wait for you.#Ps 41:12
