1 Dauid prayeth for remission of sinnes, whereof he maketh a deepe confession. 6 Hee prayeth for sanctification. 16 God delighteth not in sacrifice, but in sinceritie. 18 Hee prayeth for the Church.

1[To the chiefe Musician. A Psalme of Dauid, when Nathan the Prophet came vnto him, after hee had gone in to Bath-sheba.] Haue mercie vpon mee, O God, according to thy louing kindnesse: according vnto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2Wash mee throughly from mine iniquitie, and clense me from my sinne.

3For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sinne is euer before mee.

4Against thee, thee onely haue I sinned, and done this euill in thy sight: that thou mightest bee iustified when thou speakest, and be cleare when thou iudgest.4

5Behold, I was shapen in iniquitie: and in sinne did my mother conceiue me.5

6Behold, thou desirest trueth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisedome.

7Purge me with hyssope, and I shalbe cleane: wash me, and I shall be whiter then snow.7

8Make mee to heare ioy and gladnesse: that the bones which thou hast broken, may reioyce.

9Hide thy face from my sinnes; and blot out all mine iniquities.

10Create in mee a cleane heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within mee.10

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

12Restore vnto me the ioy of thy saluation: and vphold mee with thy free Spirit.

13Then will I teach transgressours thy wayes, and sinners shalbe conuerted vnto thee.

14Deliuer mee from blood-guiltinesse, O God, thou God of my saluation: and my tongue shall sing alowd of thy righteousnesse.14

15O Lord open thou my lips, and my mouth shall shew foorth thy praise.

16For thou desirest not sacrifice: else would I giue it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.16

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

18Doe good in thy good pleasure vnto Sion: build thou the walles of Ierusalem.

19Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousnesse, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullockes vpon thine altar.
