Psalm 51:1-10 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1 1Have mercy on me,a O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your 2abundant mercy 3blot out my transgressions. 2 4Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and 5cleanse me from my sin! 3 6For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. 4 7Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil 8in your sight, 9so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. 5 Behold, 10I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. 6 Behold, you delight in truth in 11the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. 7 Purge me 12with hyssop, and I shall be clean; 13wash me, and I shall be 14whiter than snow. 8 Let me hear joy and gladness; 15let the bones 16that you have broken rejoice. 9 17Hide your face from my sins, and 18blot out all my iniquities. 10 19Create in me a 20clean heart, O God, and 21renew a rightb spirit within me.
