Book of Psalms Chapter 51

Psalms Chapter 51

3 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness: according to the multitude of thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
4 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
5 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
6 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
7 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
8 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
9 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
10 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
11 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
12 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
13 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
14 Restore to me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
15 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted to thee.
16 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
17 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
18 For thou desirest not sacrifice: else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt-offering.
19 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
20 Do good in thy good pleasure to Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
21 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt-offering and whole burnt-offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thy altar.

Verse of the Day

“And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.”

Matthew 20: 17-19: KJV
