1 To thee, O Jehovah! my soul have I lifted up.
2 O my God! in thee have I hoped: Let me not be put to shame, Let not my enemies rejoice over me.
3 Yea none who wait on thee shall be put to shame: They shall be ashamed who deal perfidiously without cause.
4 Thy ways, O Jehovah! make me to know, Thy paths teach thou me.
5 Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; For thou art the God of my salvation; For thee I have waited all the day.
6 Remember thy compassions, O Jehovah! And thy loving-kindnesses; for they have been from everlasting.
7 The transgressions of my youth, and my iniquities do not thou remember According to thy clemency remember thou me, For the sake of thy goodness, O Jehovah!
8 Good and upright is Jehovah, Therefore he will teach sinners in the way.
9 He will guide the poor in judgment, And will teach the poor his way.
10 All the ways of Jehovah are mercy and truth, To those who keep his covenant and his testimony.
11 For the sake of thy name, O Jehovah! Be merciful to my iniquity, for great is it.
12 Who is the man that feareth Jehovah? He will teach him in the way which he should choose.
13 His soul in good shall dwell, And his seed shall inherit the land.
14 The counsel of Jehovah is to those who fear him, That he may make known to them his covenant.
15 My eyes are continually towards Jehovah, For he will bring out of the net my feet.
16 Have respect to me, take pity upon me, For solitary and poor am I.
17 The afflictions of my heart are enlarged; Out of my distresses do thou bring me.
18 Behold my affliction and my travail, And take away all my sins.
19 Behold my enemies, for they are multiplied; And with a violent hatred they hate me.
20 Guard my soul, and rescue me, That I may not be ashamed; For I have trusted in thee.
21 Let integrity and rectitude preserve me; Because I have waited for thee.
22 Redeem O God! Israel from all his troubles.
