Psalm 25.1-10To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; O my God, in you I trust; •let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies triumph over me.
Let none who look to you be put to shame • but let the treacherous be shamed and frustrated.Make me to know your ways, O Lord, • and teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me, • for you are the God of my salvation; for you have I hoped all the day long.Remember, Lord, your compassion and love, • for they are from everlasting.
Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions • but think on me in your goodness, O Lord, according to your steadfast love.Gracious and upright is the Lord; • therefore shall he teach sinners in the way.
He will guide the humble in doing right • and teach his way to the lowly.All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth • to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For your name's sake, O Lord, • be merciful to my sin, for it is great.
Who are those who fear the Lord? • Them will he teach in the way that they should choose.Their soul shall dwell at ease • and their offspring shall inherit the land.
The hidden purpose of the Lord is for those who fear him • and he will show them his covenant.My eyes are ever looking to the Lord, • for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn to me and be gracious to me, • for I am alone and brought very low.The sorrows of my heart have increased; • O bring me out of my distress.
Look upon my adversity and misery • and forgive me all my sin.Look upon my enemies, for they are many • and they bear a violent hatred against me.
O keep my soul and deliver me; • let me not be put to shame, for I have put my trust in you.Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, • for my hope has been in you.
Deliver Israel, O God, • out of all his troubles.

those who build
it labour in vain.
the Lord keeps the city, •
the guard keeps
watch in vain.

bread of toil, •

they dispute with their enemies in the gate.
