51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: According to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, And done that which is evil in thy sight; That thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, And be clear when thou judgest.
51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts; And in the hidden part thou wilt make me to know wisdom.
51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation; `And' my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
51:16 For thou delightest not in sacrifice; else would I give it: Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.
51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
51:19 Then will thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, In burnt-offering and in whole burnt-offering: Then will they offer bullocks upon thine altar. Psalm 52 For the Chief Musician. Maschil of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Abimelech.
