Chapter 50

1

 Unto the end, a psalm of David, 

2

 when Nathan the prophet came to him after he had sinned with Bethsabee. 

3

 Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy great mercy. And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my iniquity. 

4

 Wash me yet more from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 

5

 For I know my iniquity, and my sin is always before me. 

6

 To thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before thee: that thou mayst be justified in thy words and mayst overcome when thou art judged. 

7

 For behold I was conceived in iniquities; and in sins did my mother conceive me. 

8

 For behold thou hast loved truth: the uncertain and hidden things of thy wisdom thou hast made manifest to me. 

9

 Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be cleansed: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 

10

 To my hearing thou shalt give joy and gladness: and the bones that have been humbled shall rejoice. 

11

 Turn away thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 

12

 Create a clean heart in me, O God: and renew a right spirit within my bowels. 

13

 Cast me not away from thy face; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 

14

 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and strengthen me with a perfect spirit. 

15

 I will teach the unjust thy ways: and the wicked shall be converted to thee. 

16

 Deliver me from blood, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall extol thy justice. 

17

 O Lord, thou wilt open my lips: and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 

18

 For if thou hadst desired sacrifice, I would indeed have given it: with burnt offerings thou wilt not be delighted. 

19

 A sacrifice to God is an afflicted spirit: a contrite and humbled heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. 

20

 Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good will with Sion; that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up. 

21

 Then shalt thou accept the sacrifice of justice, oblations and whole burnt offerings: then shall they lay calves upon thy altar.
