To You, O YHWH, I lift up my being.
O my Elohim, in You I have put my trust; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies exult over me.
Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those who are treacherous without cause be ashamed.
Show me Your ways, O YHWH; Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the Elohim of my deliverance; On You I wait all the day.
Remember, O YHWH, Your compassion and Your kindnesses, For they are from everlasting.
Do not remember the sins of my youth, and my transgressions; According to Your kindness remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O YHWH.
Good and straight is YHWH; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
He guides the meek ones in right-ruling, And He teaches the meek ones His way.
All the paths of YHWH are kindness and truth, To those who guard His covenant and His witnesses.
For Your Name's sake, O YHWH, You shall pardon my crookedness, though it is great.
Who, then, is the man that fears YHWH? He teaches him in the way he should choose.
His life dwells in good, And his seed inherits the earth.
The secret of YHWH is with those who fearg Him, And He makes His covenant known to them.
My eyes are ever toward YHWH, For He brings my feet out of the net.
Turn Your face to me, and show me favour, For I am lonely and afflicted.
The distresses of my heart have enlarged; Oh, bring me out of my distresses!
Look on my affliction and my toil, And forgive all my sins.
See how many my enemies have become; And they hate me with a violent hatred.
Oh, guard my life, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I have taken refuge in You.
Let integrity and straightness guard me, For I have waited for You.
Redeem Yisra'el, O Elohim, Out of all his distresses!
