25 To you, O Jehovah, I turn.*
2 My God, I trust in you;+
Do not let me be put to shame.+
Do not let my enemies gloat over me.+
3 Surely none who hope in you will be put to shame,+
But shame awaits those who are treacherous without cause.+
4 Make me know your ways, O Jehovah;+
Teach me your paths.+
5 Cause me to walk in your truth and teach me,+
For you are my God of salvation.
In you I hope all day long.
6 Remember your mercy, O Jehovah, and your loyal love,+
Which you have always shown.*+
7 Do not remember the sins of my youth and my transgressions.
Remember me according to your loyal love,+
For the sake of your goodness, O Jehovah.+
8 Good and upright is Jehovah.+
That is why he instructs sinners in the way to live.+
9 He will guide the meek in what is right,*+
And he will teach the meek ones his way.+
10 All the paths of Jehovah are loyal love and faithfulness
For those observing his covenant+ and his reminders.+
11 For the sake of your name, O Jehovah,+
Forgive my error, though it is great.
12 Who is the man fearing Jehovah?+
He will instruct him about the way he should choose.+
13 He* will experience what is good,+
And his descendants* will take possession of the earth.+
14 Close friendship with Jehovah belongs to those who fear him,+
And he makes his covenant known to them.+
15 My eyes are always toward Jehovah,+
For he will free my feet from the net.+
16 Turn your face to me and show me favor,
For I am alone and helpless.
17 The distresses of my heart have multiplied;+
Free me from my anguish.
18 See my affliction and my trouble,+
And pardon all my sins.+
19 See how numerous my enemies are
And how violent their hatred is for me.
20 Guard my life* and save me.+
Do not let me be put to shame, for I have taken refuge in you.
21 May integrity and uprightness safeguard me,+
For my hope is in you.+
22 O God, rescue* Israel out of all his distresses.
