1 Have mercy, God, according to your gracious love, according to your unlimited compassion, erase my transgressions.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done what was evil in your sight. As a result, you are just in your pronouncement and clear in your judgment.
6 Indeed, you are pleased with truth in the inner person, and you will teach me wisdom in my innermost parts.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, God, God of my salvation. Then my tongue will sing about your righteousness.
16 Indeed, you do not delight in sacrifices, or I would give them, nor do you desire burnt offerings.
17 True sacrifice to God is a broken spirit. A broken and chastened heart, God, you will not despise.
