Tehillim (Psalms) 25
1Aleph To You, O יהוה, I lift up my being.
2Bĕt O my Elohim, in You I have put my trust; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies exult over me.
3Gimel Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those who are treacherous without cause be ashamed.
4Dalet Show me Your ways, O יהוה; Teach me Your paths.
5 Lead me in Your truth (Waw) and teach me, For You are the Elohim of my deliverance; On You I wait all the day.
6Zayin Remember, O יהוה, Your compassion and Your loving-commitments, For they are from everlasting.
7Ḥet Do not remember the sins of my youth, and my transgressions; According to Your loving-commitment remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O יהוה.
8Tet Good and straight is יהוה; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
9Yod He guides the meek ones in right-ruling, And He teaches the meek ones His way.
10Kaph All the paths of יהוה are loving-commitment and truth, To those who guard His covenant and His witnesses.
11Lamed For Your Name’s sake, O יהוה, You shall pardon my crookedness, though it is great.
12Mem Who, then, is the man that fears יהוה? He teaches him in the way he should choose.
13Nun His life dwells in good, And his seed inherits the earth.
14Sameḵ The secret of יהוה is with those who fear Him, And He makes His covenant known to them.
15Ayin My eyes are ever toward יהוה, For He brings my feet out of the net.
16 Turn Your face to me, and show me favour, For I am lonely and afflicted.
17Tsadi The distresses of my heart have enlarged; Oh, bring me out of my distresses!
18Rĕsh#Not a Qoph in the Hebrew text, but a Rĕsh. Look on my affliction and my toil, And forgive all my sins.
19Rĕsh See how many my enemies have become; And they hate me with a violent hatred.
20Shin Oh, guard my life, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I have taken refuge in You.
21Taw Let integrity and straightness guard me, For I have waited for You.
22Redeem Yisra’ĕl, O Elohim, Out of all his distresses!
