Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when (A)Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

51 (B)Have mercy on me,[a] O God,
    according to your steadfast love;
according to your (C)abundant mercy
    (D)blot out my transgressions.
(E)Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
    and (F)cleanse me from my sin!

  1. Psalm 51:1 Or Be gracious to me

17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord,[a] (A)make your face to shine upon (B)your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 (C)O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see (D)our desolations, and (E)the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. (F)Delay not, (G)for your own sake, O my God, because (H)your city and (I)your people are called by your name.”
