1 Have mercy on me, God, according to your faithful love! Wipe away my wrongdoings according to your great compassion!

2 Wash me completely clean of my guilt; purify me from my sin!

3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.
4 I've sinned against you—you alone. I've committed evil in your sight. That's why you are justified when you render your verdict, completely correct when you issue your judgment.
4 Against you, you alone, have I sinned, and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are justified in your sentence and blameless when you pass judgment.
5 Yes, I was born in guilt, in sin, from the moment my mother conceived me.
5 Indeed, I was born guilty, a sinner when my mother conceived me.
6 And yes, you want truth in the most hidden places; you teach me wisdom in the most secret space.
6 You desire truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
7 Purify me with hyssop and I will be clean; wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and celebration again; let the bones you crushed rejoice once more.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have crushed rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins; wipe away all my guilty deeds!
9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create a clean heart for me, God; put a new, faithful spirit deep inside me!
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.
11 Please don't throw me out of your presence; please don't take your holy spirit away from me.
11 Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me.
12 Return the joy of your salvation to me and sustain me with a willing spirit.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.
