I lift my inner being to you, Adonai;
2I trust you, my God.
Don’t let me be disgraced,
don’t let my enemies gloat over me.
3No one waiting for you will be disgraced;
disgrace awaits those who break faith for no reason.
4Make me know your ways, Adonai,
teach me your paths.
5Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God who saves me,
my hope is in you all day long.
6Remember your compassion and grace, Adonai;
for these are ages old.
7Don’t remember my youthful sins or transgressions;
but remember me according to your grace
for the sake of your goodness, Adonai.
8Adonai is good, and he is fair;
this is why he teaches sinners the way [to live],
9leads the humble to do what is right
and teaches the humble [to live] his way.
10All Adonai’s paths are grace and truth
to those who keep his covenant and instructions.
11For the sake of your name, Adonai,
forgive my wickedness, great though it is.
12Who is the person who fears Adonai?
He will teach him the way to choose.
13He will remain prosperous,
and his descendants will inherit the land.
14Adonai relates intimately with those who fear him;
he makes them know his covenant.
15My eyes are always directed toward Adonai,
for he will free my feet from the net.
16Turn to me, and show me your favor;
for I am alone and oppressed.
17The troubles of my heart are growing and growing;
bring me out of my distress.
18See my affliction and suffering,
and take all my sins away.
19Consider my enemies, how many there are
and how cruelly they hate me.
20Protect me and rescue me;
don’t let me be disgraced,
for I take refuge in you.
21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
because my hope is in you.
22God! Redeem Isra’el
from all their troubles!
