1 ALWAYS I will lift up my soul to You, Eternal One, 2 BECAUSE You are my God and I put my trust in You. Do not let me be humiliated. Do not let my enemies celebrate at my expense. 3 CERTAINLY none of the people who rely on You will be shamed, but those who are unfaithful, who intentionally deceive, they are the ones who will be disgraced.
4 DEMONSTRATE Your ways, O Eternal One. Teach me to understand so I can follow. 5 EASE me down the path of Your truth. FEED me Your word because You are the True God who has saved me. I wait all day long, hoping, trusting in You.
6 GRACIOUS Eternal One, remember Your compassion; rekindle Your concern and love, which have always been part of Your actions toward those who are Yours. 7 Do not HOLD against me the sins I committed when I was young; instead, deal with me according to Your mercy and love. Then Your goodness may be demonstrated in all the world, Eternal One.
8 IMMENSELY good and honorable is the Eternal; that’s why He teaches sinners the way. 9 With JUSTICE, He directs the humble in all that is right, and He shows them His way. 10 KIND and true are all the ways of the Eternal to the people who keep His covenant and His words.
11 O LORD, the Eternal, bring glory to Your name, and forgive my sins because they are beyond number. 12 MAY anyone who fears the Eternal be shown the path he should choose.
13 His soul will NOT only live in goodness, but his children will inherit the land. 14 ONLY those who stand in awe of the Eternal will have intimacy with Him, and He will reveal His covenant to them. 15 PERPETUALLY my focus takes me to the Eternal because He will set me free from the traps laid for me.
16 QUIETLY turn Your eyes to me and be compassionate toward me because I am lonely and persecuted. 17 RAPIDLY my heart beats as troubles build on the horizon. Come relieve me from these threats. 18 SEE my troubles and my misery, and forgive all my sins. 19 TAKE notice of my enemies. See how there are so many of them who hate me and would seek my violent destruction. 20 Watch over my soul, and let me face shame and defeat UNASHAMED because You are my refuge. 21 May honor and strong character keep me safe. VIGILANTLY I wait for You, hoping, trusting.
