He guides1 the humble in what is right and teaches them2 his way.
All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful3 for those who keep the demands of his covenant.411
For the sake of your name,5 O LORD, forgive6 my iniquity,7 though it is great.
Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD?8 He will instruct him in the way9 chosen for him.
He will spend his days in prosperity,10 and his descendants will inherit the land.1114
The LORD confides12 in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known13 to them.
My eyes are ever on the LORD,14 for only he will release my feet from the snare.1516
Turn to me16 and be gracious to me,17 for I am lonely18 and afflicted.
The troubles19 of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.2018
Look upon my affliction21 and my distress22 and take away all my sins.2319
See how my enemies24 have increased and how fiercely they hate me!25
