A Prayer of Repentance and Plea for Mercy

1 aBe gracious to me, O God, according to your loyal love. According to your abundant mercies, blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and from my sin cleanse me. 3 For {I myself know}b my transgressions,c and my sin [is] ever before me. 4 Against you, only you, I have sinned and have done this evild in your eyes, so that you are correct when you speak, you are blameless when you judge. 5 Behold, in iniquity I was born, and in sin my mother conceived me. 6 Behold, you delight [in] truth in the inward parts, and in [the] hidden [parts] you make me to know wisdom. 7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make me hear joy and gladness; let [the] bones you have crushed rejoice. 9 Hide your face from my sins, and all my iniquities blot out. 10 Create a clean heart for me, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit {within me}.e
