Psalm 25 Thursday Midday 1
Yahweh, to you * I raise my mind.
My God, I trust in you; * keep me from shame; * don't let my enemies gloat over me.
None who invoke you will be shamed; * shame only on faithless gossips.
Yahweh, make me know your ways; * teach me your paths.
Make me walk faithful to you, and teach me, * for you are the God who will save me. * I call to you all day long.
Remember, Yahweh, how ancient * are your mercy and kindness.
The sins and errors of my youth * do not remember!
But remember me according to your kindness, * according to your goodness, Yahweh.
Yahweh is good and upright; * the Supreme Being shows sinners his way.
He guides the humble in his justice, * and teaches the poor his way.
All Yahweh's paths are kindness and truth * for those who keep the terms of his covenant.
For your name's sake, Yahweh, * forgive my sin, * great though it be.
Who has respect for Yahweh? * him he will show the path he must choose.
His soul will dwell at ease, * and his descendants will inherit the land.
Yahweh's friendship is for those who fear him, * and he reveals to them his covenant.
My eyes are always toward Yahweh, * for he will release my feet from the net.
Turn to me and have pity, * for I am alone and oppressed.
Anguish cramps my heart; * relieve me of my distress.
See my distress and trouble, * and take away all my sins.
See how many enemies I have, * treacherous enemies who hate me.
Preserve my life and rescue me; * keep me from shame since I trust in you.
May integrity and justice preserve me, * since I call upon you.
Ransom Israel, God, * from all its anguish.
