Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon.

A Psalm of David.

1 To You, O Lord, I alift up my soul.

2 O my God, in You aI trust,

Do not let me bbe ashamed;

Do not let my cenemies exult over me.

3 Indeed, anone of those who wait for You will be ashamed;

1Those who bdeal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

4 aMake me know Your ways, O Lord;

Teach me Your paths.

5 Lead me in aYour truth and teach me,

For You are the bGod of my salvation;

For You I cwait all the day.

6 aRemember, O Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses,

For they have been 1bfrom of old.

7 Do not remember the asins of my youth or my transgressions;

bAccording to Your lovingkindness remember me,

For Your cgoodness’ sake, O Lord.

8 aGood and bupright is the Lord;

Therefore He cinstructs sinners in the way.

9 He aleads the 1humble in justice,

And He bteaches the 1humble His way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are alovingkindness and truth

To bthose who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

11 For aYour name’s sake, O Lord,

bPardon my iniquity, for it is great.

12 Who is the man who afears the Lord?

He will binstruct him in the way he should choose.

13 His soul will aabide in 1prosperity,

And his 2descendants will binherit the 3land.

14 The 1asecret of the Lord is for those who fear Him,

2And He will bmake them know His covenant.

15 My aeyes are continually toward the Lord,

For He will 1bpluck my feet out of the net.

16 aTurn to me and be gracious to me,

For I am blonely and afflicted.

17 1The atroubles of my heart are enlarged;

Bring me bout of my distresses.

18 aLook upon my affliction and my 1trouble,

And bforgive all my sins.

19 Look upon my enemies, for they aare many,

And they bhate me with violent hatred.

20 aGuard my soul and deliver me;

Do not let me bbe ashamed, for I take refuge in You.

21 Let aintegrity and uprightness preserve me,

For bI wait for You.

22 aRedeem Israel, O God,

Out of all his troubles.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
