25:1Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
25:2O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
25:3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
25:4Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
25:5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
25:6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
25:7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
25:8Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
25:9The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
25:10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
25:11For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
25:12What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
25:13His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
25:14The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
25:15Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
25:16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
25:17The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
25:18Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
25:19Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
25:20O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
25:21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
25:22Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
26:1Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
26:2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
26:3For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
26:4I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
26:5I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
26:6I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
26:7That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
26:8LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
26:9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
26:10In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
26:11But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
26:12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
27:1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
27:2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
27:3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
27:4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
27:5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
27:6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
27:7Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
27:8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
27:9Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
27:10When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
27:11Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
27:12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
27:13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
27:14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
