1By David. Unto Thee, O Jehovah, my soul I lift up.
2My God, in Thee I have trusted, Let me not be ashamed, Let not mine enemies exult over me.
3Also let none waiting on Thee be ashamed, Let the treacherous dealers without cause be ashamed.
4Thy ways, O Jehovah, cause me to know, Thy paths teach Thou me.
5Cause me to tread in Thy truth, and teach me, For Thou [art] the God of my salvation, Near Thee I have waited all the day.
6Remember Thy mercies, O Jehovah, And Thy kindnesses, for from the age [are] they.
7Sins of my youth, and my transgressions, Do not Thou remember. According to Thy kindness be mindful of me, For Thy goodness' sake, O Jehovah.
8Good and upright [is] Jehovah, Therefore He directeth sinners in the way.
9He causeth the humble to tread in judgment, And teacheth the humble His way.
10All the paths of Jehovah [are] kindness and truth, To those keeping His covenant, And His testimonies.
11For Thy name's sake, O Jehovah, Thou hast pardoned mine iniquity, for it [is] great.
12Who [is] this--the man fearing Jehovah? He directeth him in the way He doth choose.
13His soul in good doth remain, And his seed doth possess the land.
14The secret of Jehovah [is] for those fearing Him, And His covenant--to cause them to know.
15Mine eyes [are] continually unto Jehovah, For He bringeth out from a net my feet.
16Turn Thou unto me, and favour me, For lonely and afflicted [am] I.
17The distresses of my heart have enlarged themselves, From my distresses bring me out.
18See mine affliction and my misery, And bear with all my sins.
19See my enemies, for they have been many, And with violent hatred they have hated me.
20Keep my soul, and deliver me, Let me not be ashamed, for I trusted in Thee.
21Integrity and uprightness do keep me, For I have waited [on] Thee.
22Redeem Israel, O God, from all his distresses!
