To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
2. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin,
3. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.
4. Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done evil in Your sight, that You might be justified when You speak and be in the right when You judge.
5. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
7. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8. Make me to hear joy and gladness that the bones which You have broken may rejoice.
10. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11. Cast me not away from Your presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
12. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and let Your free spirit uphold me.
13. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall turn back to You.
14. Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, O God, O God of my salvation, then my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15. O LORD, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare Your praise,
16. For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not take pleasure in burnt offering.
17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
18. Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.
19. Then shall You be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering; then they shall offer bulls upon Your altar.
