Psalms 51
<To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.>

 1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
 3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
 6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
 8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
 9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
 13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
 14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
 15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
 16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
 18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
 19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
