Psalm 25 ~ Part II

For the sake of Your name, Lord,
Forgive my wrongdoing, for it is great.
Who, then, are those
who fear the Lord?

He will instruct them
in the ways they should choose.
Their souls will dwell in prosperity,
And their descendants
will inherit the land.

The Lord confides in those
who fear Him;

He makes His covenant known to them.
My eyes are continually toward the Lord,
For He will rescue my feet from the net.

Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am lonely and afflicted.
Look on my affliction and my distress
and take away all my sins.
Consider my enemies,
for they are many;
and with what violent hatred
they hate me.

Oh, guard my soul,
and deliver me!
Do not let me be put to shame,
for I take refuge in You.
Let integrity and uprightness protect me,
For I wait for You.
Redeem Israel, O God,
Out of all their troubles!
~ Psalm 25:11-22
