1 Be favorable unto me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness, And, in the multitude of thy compassions, blot out my transgressions;
4 Against thee - against thee alone, have I sinned, And, wickedness - in thine eyes, have I done, - That thou mayest, Be justified when thou speakest, - Be clear when thou judgest.
6 Lo! faithfulness, hast thou desired in the inward parts, Yea, in the hidden part, wilt thou cause me to know, wisdom.
7 Wilt thou cleanse me from sin with hyssop, That I may be pure? Wilt thou wash me, That I may be whiter, than snow?
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, And, with a willing spirit, wilt thou uphold me: -
14 Rescue me from shed-blood, O God, the God of my salvation, My tongue should shout thy righteousness;
16 For thou wilt not desire sacrifice - that I should give it, Ascending-offering, will not please:
17 The sacrifices of God, are a spirit that is broken, - A heart - broken and crushed, O God, thou wilt not despise.
