1 [To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.] Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of your tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight: that you might be justified when you speak, and be blameless when you judge.
6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part you shall make me to know wisdom.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
