Psalms 51

1Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy
According to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my

2Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

3For I know my transgressions;
And my sin is ever before me.

4Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
And done that which is evil in thy sight;
That thou mayest be justified when thou speakest,
And be clear when thou judgest.

5Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity;
And in sin did my mother conceive me. 67Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8Make me to hear joy and gladness,
That the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9Hide thy face from my sins,
And blot out all mine iniquities.

10Create in me a clean heart, O God;
And renew a right spirit within me.

11Cast me not away from thy presence;
And take not thy holy Spirit from me.

12Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;
And uphold me with a willing spirit.

13Then will I teach transgressors thy ways;
And sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my
[And] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15O Lord, open thou my lips;
And my mouth shall show forth thy praise.

16For thou delightest not in sacrifice; else would I give
Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:
A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion:
Build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19Then will thou delight in the sacrifices of
In burnt-offering and in whole burnt-offering:
Then will they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

Psalms 52

1Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?
The lovingkindness of God [endureth] continually.

2Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness,
Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

3Thou lovest evil more than good,
And lying rather than to speak righteousness.


4Thou lovest all devouring words,
thou deceitful tongue.

5God will likewise destroy thee for ever;
He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent,
And root thee out of the land of the living.


6The righteous also shall see [it], and fear,
And shall laugh at him, [saying],

7Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength,
But trusted in the abundance of his riches,
And strengthened himself in his wickedness.

8But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house
of God:
I trust in the lovingkindness of God for ever and ever.

9I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done
And I will hope in thy name, for it is good, in the presence of
thy saints.

Psalms 53

1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity;
There is none that doeth good.

2God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there were any that did understand,
That did seek after God.

3Every one of them is gone back; they are together become
There is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,
Who eat up my people [as] they eat bread,
And call not upon God?

5There were they in great fear, where no fear was;
For God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against
Thou hast put them to shame, because of God hath rejected them.

6Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!
When God bringeth back the captivity of his people,
Then shall Jacob rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.

Psalms 54

1Save me, O God, by thy name,
And judge me in thy might.

2Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.

3For strangers are risen up against me,
And violent men have sought after my soul:
They have not set God before them.


4Behold, God is my helper:
The Lord is of them that uphold my soul.

5He will requite the evil unto mine enemies:
Destroy thou them in thy truth.

6With a freewill-offering will I sacrifice unto thee:
I will give thanks unto thy name, O Jehovah, for it is good.

7For he hath delivered me out of all trouble;
And mine eye hath seen [my desire] upon mine enemies.

Psalms 55

1Give ear to my prayer, O God;
And hide not thyself from my supplication.

2Attend unto me, and answer me:
I am restless in my complaint, and moan,

3Because of the voice of the enemy,
Because of the oppression of the wicked;
For they cast iniquity upon me,
And in anger they persecute me.

4My heart is sore pained within me:
And the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

5Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me,
And horror hath overwhelmed me.

6And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove!
Then would I fly away, and be at rest.

7Lo, then would I wander far off,
I would lodge in the wilderness.


8I would haste me to a shelter
From the stormy wind and tempest.

9Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongue;
For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

10Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof:
Iniquity also and mischief are in the midst of it.

11Wickedness is in the midst thereof:
Oppression and guile depart not from its streets.

12For it was not an enemy that reproached me;
Then I could have borne it:
Neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against
Then I would have hid myself from him:

13But it was thou, a man mine equal,
My companion, and my familiar friend.

14We took sweet counsel together;
We walked in the house of God with the throng.

15Let death come suddenly upon them,
Let them go down alive into Sheol;
For wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.

16As for me, I will call upon God;
And Jehovah will save me.

17Evening, and morning, and at noonday, will I complain,
and moan;
And he will hear my voice.

18He hath redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that
was against me;
For they were many [that strove] with me.

19God will hear, and answer them,
Even he that abideth of old,


[The men] who have no changes,
And who fear not God.

20He hath put forth his hands against such as were at
peace with him:
He hath profaned his covenant.

21His mouth was smooth as butter,
But his heart was war:
His words were softer than oil,
Yet were they drawn swords.

22Cast thy burden upon Jehovah, and he will sustain thee:
He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.

23But thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the pit of
Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their
But I will trust in thee.
