(24-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
(24-2) In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
(24-3) Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.
(24-4) Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.
(24-5) Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.
(24-6) Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.
(24-7) The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.
(24-8) The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.
(24-9) He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.
(24-10) All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.
(24-11) For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.
(24-12) Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.
(24-13) His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.
(24-14) The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.
(24-15) My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.
(24-16) Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.
(24-17) The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.
(24-18) See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.
(24-19) Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.
(24-20) Deep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.
(24-21) The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.
(24-22) Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.
