Teach Me Your Paths

Psalm 25

Of David.
To You, Adonai, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in You I trust,
so I will not be ashamed,
and my enemies will not gloat over me.
Surely no one who waits for You will be ashamed.
But the treacherous without cause will be ashamed.
Show me Your ways, Adonai.
Teach me Your paths.
Guide me in Your truth, and teach me,
for You are God, my salvation,
for You I wait all day.
Remember, Adonai,
Your compassions and Your mercies—
for they are from eternity.
Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my rebellion.
According to Your mercy remember me,
    for the sake of Your goodness, Adonai.
Good and upright is Adonai.
Therefore He directs sinners in the way.
He guides the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble His way.
10 All Adonai’s ways are lovingkindness
and truth
    to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.
11 For Your Name’s sake, Adonai,
pardon my guilt, for it is great.
12 Who is this man who fears Adonai?
He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
13 His soul abides in goodness,
and his offspring will inherit the land.
14 The secret of Adonai is for those who fear Him.
He makes His covenant known to them.
15 My eyes are always looking to Adonai,
for He will pull my feet out of the net.
16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
for I am lonely and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart increase.
Bring me out of my distress.
18 See my affliction and my suffering,
and take away all my sins.
19 See my enemies, how many they are—
they hate me with violent hatred.
20 Guard my soul and deliver me.
Let me not be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
21 May integrity and uprightness protect me—
for I wait for You.
22 Redeem Israel, O God,
from all their troubles.
