25:1 A Psalm of David. Unto Thee, O the Lord, do I lift up my soul.

25:2 O my God, in Thee have I trusted, let me not be ashamed; let not mine enemies triumph over me.

25:3 Yea, none that wait for Thee shall be ashamed; they shall be ashamed that deal treacherously without cause.

25:4 Show me Thy ways, O the Lord; teach me Thy paths.

25:5 Guide me in Thy truth, and teach me; for Thou art the God of my salvation; for Thee do I wait all the day.

25:6 Remember, O the Lord, Thy compassions and Thy mercies; for they have been from of old.

25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to Thy mercy remember Thou me, for Thy goodness' sake, O the Lord.

25:8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore doth He instruct sinners in the way.

25:9 He guideth The humble in justice; and He teacheth the humble His way.

25:10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.

25:11 For Thy name's sake, O the Lord, pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.

25:12 What man is he that feareth the Lord? him will He instruct in the way that He should choose.

25:13 His soul shall abide in prosperity; and his seed shall inherit the land.

25:14 The counsel of the Lord is with them that fear Him; and His covenant, to make them know it.

25:15 Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for He will bring forth my feet out of the net.

25:16 Turn Thee unto me, and be gracious unto me; for I am solitary and afflicted.

25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged; O bring Thou me out of my distresses.

25:18 See mine affliction and my travail; and forgive all my sins.

25:19 Consider how many are mine enemies, and the cruel hatred wherewith they hate me.

25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I have taken refuge in Thee.

25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, because I wait for Thee.

25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
