2 1Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity And 2cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I 3know my transgressions, And my sin is ever before me.
4 4Against You, You only, I have sinned And done what is 5evil in Your sight, So that 6You are justified when You speak And blameless when You judge.
5 Behold, I was 7brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire 8truth in the innermost being, And in the hidden part You will 9make me know wisdom.
7 Purify me 10with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be 11whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear 12joy and gladness, Let the 13bones which You have broken rejoice.
9 14Hide Your face from my sins And blot out all my iniquities.
10 15Create in me a 16clean heart, O God, And renew a 17steadfast spirit within me.
11 18Do not cast me away from Your presence And do not take Your 19Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the 20joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a 21willing spirit.
