Psalm 25

Confidence in God &

a reminder of his love

A Psalm of David

In you Lord my God, I put my trust
 2 I trust in you.
   Don’t let me be put to shame.
      Don’t let my enemies win the battle over me.
3 Those who put their hope in you
      will never be put to shame.
   But those who can’t be trusted will be put to shame. They have no excuse.

 4 Lord, show me your ways.
      Teach me how to follow you.

 5 Guide me in your truth. Teach me.
      You are God my Saviour.
      I put my hope in you all day long.
6 Lord, remember your great mercy and love.
      You have shown them to your people for a long time.
7 Don’t remember the sins I committed when I was young.
Don’t remember how often I refused to obey you.
   Remember me because you love me.
      Lord, you are good.
8 The Lord is honest and good.
      He teaches sinners to walk in his ways.
9 He shows those who aren’t proud how to do what is right.
      He teaches them his ways.
10 All of the Lord’s ways are loving and faithful
      for those who obey what his covenant commands.

11 Lord, be true to your name.
      Forgive my sin, even though it is great.
12 Who is the man who has respect for the Lord?
      God will teach him the way he has chosen for him.
13 Things will always go well for him.
      His children will be given the land.

14 The Lord shares his plans with those who have respect for him.
He makes his covenant known to them.

15 My eyes always look to the Lord.
He alone can set my feet free from the trap.

16 Turn to me and show me your favour.
I am lonely and hurting.

17 The troubles of my heart have increased.
Set me free from my great pain.

18 Look at how I’m hurting! See how much I suffer!
Take away all of my sins.

19 Look at how many enemies I have!
See how terrible their hatred is for me!

20 Guard my life. Save me.
Don’t let me be put to shame.
I go to you for safety.

21 May my honest and good life keep me safe.
I have put my hope in you.

22 God, set Israel free
from all of their troubles!
