1: Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. 2: O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3: Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 4: Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. 5: Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. 6: Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. 7: Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD. 8: Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. 9: The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. 10: All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 11: For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. 12: What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. 13: His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. 14: The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. 15: Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. 16: Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. 17: The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. 18: Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. 19: Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. 20: O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. 21: Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. 22: Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

1: In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. 2: Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. 3: Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress. 4: Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 5: For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth. 6: By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee. 7: I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge. 8: Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day. 9: Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. 10: For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, 11: Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. 12: O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help. 13: Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt. 14: But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. 15: My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. 16: I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. 17: O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. 18: Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. 19: Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee! 20: Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. 21: Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. 22: I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel. 23: My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed. 24: My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
