Psalm 50


To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God,
   According to Your lovingkindness; 
   According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
   Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
   And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
   And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
   And done this evil in Your sight—
   That You may be found just when You speak, 
   And blameless when You judge.
5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
   And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
   And in the hidden part You will 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 hear joy and gladness,
   That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins,
   And blot out all my iniquities.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
     And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
     And sinners shall be converted to You.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
     The God of my salvation,
     And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
     And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
     You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
     A broken and a contrite heart—
     These, O God, You will not despise.
18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
     Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
     With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
     Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.
