    Psalms 51
    King James Version

    1 Have mercy upon me, O God,
    according to thy lovingkindness:
    according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies
    blot out my transgressions.​
    2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity,
    and cleanse me from my sin.​

    3 For I acknowledge my transgressions:
    and my sin is ever before me.​
    4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
    and done this evil in thy sight:
    that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest,
    and be clear when thou judgest.​

    5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity;
    and in sin did my mother conceive me.​
    6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts:
    and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.​

    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 thou hast broken may rejoice.​
    9 Hide thy face from my sins,
    and blot out all mine iniquities.​

    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God;
    and renew a right spirit within me.​
    11 Cast me not away from thy presence;
    and take not thy holy spirit from me.​

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;
    and uphold me with thy free spirit.​
    13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways;
    and sinners shall be converted unto thee.​

    14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
    thou God of my salvation:
    and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.​
    15 O Lord, open thou my lips;
    and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.​
    16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it:
    thou delightest not in burnt offering.​
    17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:
    a broken and a contrite heart,
    O God, thou wilt not despise.​

    18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion:
    build thou the walls of Jerusalem.​
    19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
    with burnt offering and whole burnt offering:
    then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.


    Create In Me A Clean Heart

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
