Psalm 51:1-10 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. A "maskil" of David to be played on stringed instruments.

1 God, show me your favor in keeping with your faithful love. Because your love is so tender and kind, wipe out my lawless acts. 2 Wash away all of the evil things I've done. Make me pure from my sin. 3 I know the lawless acts I've committed. I can't forget my sin. 4 You are the one I've really sinned against. I've done what is evil in your sight. So you are right when you sentence me. You are fair when you judge me. 5 I know I've been a sinner ever since I was born. I've been a sinner ever since my mother became pregnant with me. 6 I know that you want truth to be in my heart. You teach me wisdom deep down inside me. 7 Make me pure by sprinkling me with hyssop plant. Then I will be clean. Wash me. Then I will be whiter than snow. 8 Let me hear you say, "Your sins are forgiven." That will bring me joy and gladness. Let the body you have broken be glad. 9 Take away all of my sins. Wipe away all of the evil things I've done. 10 God, create a pure heart in me. Give me a new spirit that is faithful to you.
