1

UNTO thee, aO LORD, do I lift up my soul.

2

O my God, I btrust in thee: clet me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies dtriumph over me.

3

Yea, elet none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

4

fShew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

5

gLead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

6

hRemember, O LORD, 1thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

7

iRemember not the jsins of my youth, nor my transgressions: kaccording to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

8

lGood and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.

9

The mmeek will he nguide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

10

All othe paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

11

For pthy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for qit is great.

What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he rteach in the way that he shall choose.

13

His soul 2shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall sinherit the earth.

14

The tsecret of the LORD is with them that fear him; 3and he will shew them his covenant.

15

Mine ueyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall 4pluck my feet out of vthe net.

Turn wthee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

17

The xtroubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.

18

Look yupon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.

19

Consider zmine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with 5cruel hatred.

O akeep my soul, and deliver me: blet me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
