according to your xabundant mercy
yblot out my transgressions.
2 zWash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and acleanse me from my sin!
3 bFor I know my transgressions,
4 cAgainst you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil din your sight,
eso that you may be justified in your words
5 Behold, fI was brought forth in iniquity,
6 Behold, you delight in truth in gthe inward being,
7 Purge me hwith hyssop, and I shall be clean;
9 lHide your face from my sins,
and yblot out all my iniquities.
11 pCast me not away from your presence,
and take not qyour Holy Spirit from me.
and sinners will rreturn to you.
14 Deliver me from sbloodguiltiness, O God,
O tGod of my salvation,
16 wFor you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
17 The sacrifices of God are xa broken spirit;
18 yDo good to Zion in your good pleasure;
zbuild up the walls of Jerusalem;
19 then will you delight in aright sacrifices,
in burnt offerings and bwhole burnt offerings;
1 Blessed is the man1
nor stands in cthe way of sinners,
and on his hlaw he meditates day and night.
3 He is like ia tree
planted by jstreams of water
and its kleaf does not wither.
lIn all that he does, he prospers.
but are like mchaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked nwill not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in othe congregation of the righteous;
