25 Lord, I ·give myself [L lift my soul] to you; 2 my God, I ·trust [have confidence in] you. Do not let me be ·disgraced [shamed]; do not let my enemies ·laugh at [triumph/exult over] me. 3 No one who ·trusts [hopes in; waits on] you will be ·disgraced [shamed], but those who ·sin [betray; are treacherous] without excuse will be ·disgraced [shamed].
4 Lord, ·tell me [make me know] your ways. ·Show [L Teach] me ·how to live [L your paths]. 5 ·Guide [Lead] me in your truth, and teach me, my God, my ·Savior [Helper; Victor]. I ·trust [hope in; wait on] you all day long. 6 Lord, remember your ·mercy [compassion] and ·love [loyalty; covenant love] that you have shown since long ago. 7 Do not remember the sins and ·wrong things I did when I was young [transgressions of my youth]. But remember ·to love me [L according to your love/loyalty/covenant love] always ·because you are good [on account of your goodness], Lord.
8 The Lord is good and ·right [upright; virtuous]; he ·points [instructs] sinners to the right way. 9 He shows those who are humble how to do right, and he teaches them his ways. 10 All the Lord’s ·ways [paths] are ·loving [loyal] and ·true [reliable] for those who ·follow [keep; guard] the demands of his ·agreement [covenant]. 11 For the sake of your ·name [reputation], Lord, forgive my many sins. 12 ·Are there [L Who are…?] those who ·respect [fear] the Lord[Prov. 1:7]? He will ·point [teach] them ·to the best way [L the way they should choose]. 13 ·They will enjoy a good life [L Their soul will dwell/lodge in goodness], and their ·children [L seed] will inherit the ·land [or earth]. 14 The Lord ·tells his secrets to [confides in; or makes friends with] those who ·respect [fear] him; he ·tells them about [makes known to them] his ·agreement [covenant]. 15 My eyes are always ·looking to the Lord for help [L toward the Lord]. He will ·keep me [L remove my feet] from any traps. 16 Turn to me and ·have mercy on [L be gracious to] me, because I am lonely and hurting. 17 ·My troubles have [L The distress of my heart has] ·grown larger [widened]; ·free me from [bring me out of] my ·problems [anguish; distress]. 18 Look at my ·suffering [affliction] and troubles, and ·take away [forgive] all my sins. 19 Look at how many enemies I have! See how ·much [L violently] they hate me! 20 Protect me and ·save [rescue; T deliver] me. I ·trust [find refuge in] you, so do not let me be ·disgraced [shamed]. 21 My hope is in you, so may ·goodness [blamelessness; innocence] and ·honesty [virtue] guard me. 22 God, ·save [redeem; ransom] Israel from all their ·troubles [distress]!
