1Unto Thee, Hashem, do I lift up my nefesh. 2O Elohai, I trust in Thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine oyevim triumph over me. 3Yea, let none that wait [hoping in] Thee be ashamed; let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 4Show me Thy ways, Hashem; teach me Thy paths. 5Lead me in Thy emes, and teach me; for Thou art the Elohei of my Salvation; on Thee do I wait kol hayom. 6Remember, Hashem, Thy rachamim and Thy lovingkindnesses; for they have ever been of old. 7Remember not the chattot of my youth, nor my peysha'im; according to Thy chesed remember Thou me for the sake of Thy goodness, Hashem. 8Tov and yashar is Hashem; therefore will He teach chatta'im in the Derech. 9The meek will He guide in mishpat; and the aniyim will He teach His way. 10All the paths of Hashem are chesed and emes unto such as keep His Brit (covenant) and His Edot (covenant demands, urgings, reminders, testimonies). 11For the sake of Thy Shem, Hashem, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. 12What man is he that feareth Hashem? Him shall He teach in the Derech that he shall choose. 13His nefesh (soul) shall dwell in prosperity; and his zera shall inherit the earth. 14The secret of Hashem is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His Brit (covenant). 15Mine eyes are ever toward Hashem; for He shall pluck my feet out of the reshet (net). 16Turn Thee unto me, and be gracious unto me; for I am yachid (alone, lonely) and afflicted. 17The tzoros of my lev are multiplied; O bring Thou me forth out of my distresses. 18Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and take away all my chattot. 19Look upon mine enemies; for they are increased; and they hate me with sinas chamas. 20Be shomer over my nefesh, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed; for I take refuge in Thee. 21Let tohm (integrity, guilelessness) and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on Thee. 22Redeem Yisroel, O Elohim, out of all his tzoros.
