For the sake of your name,1 O LORD, forgive2 my iniquity,3 though it is great.
Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD?4 He will instruct him in the way5 chosen for him.
He will spend his days in prosperity,6 and his descendants will inherit the land.714
The LORD confides8 in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known9 to them.
My eyes are ever on the LORD,10 for only he will release my feet from the snare.1116
Turn to me12 and be gracious to me,13 for I am lonely14 and afflicted.
The troubles15 of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.1618
Look upon my affliction17 and my distress18 and take away all my sins.1919
See how my enemies20 have increased and how fiercely they hate me!2120
Guard my life22 and rescue me;23 let me not be put to shame,24 for I take refuge25 in you.
May integrity26 and uprightness27 protect me, because my hope is in you.28
