10 (A)Create in me a (B)clean heart, O God,
    and (C)renew a right[a] spirit within me.
11 (D)Cast me not away from your presence,
    and take not (E)your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
    and uphold me with a willing spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
    and sinners will (F)return to you.
14 Deliver me from (G)bloodguiltiness, O God,
    O (H)God of my salvation,
    and (I)my tongue will sing aloud of your (J)righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
    and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 (K)For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
    you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are (L)a broken spirit;
    a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

18 (M)Do good to Zion in your good pleasure;
    (N)build up the walls of Jerusalem;
19 then will you delight in (O)right sacrifices,
    in burnt offerings and (P)whole burnt offerings;
    then bulls will be offered on your altar.
