The Joy of Jesus is Salvation to All

A Prayer for Cleansing
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, 2.1--0.1 ; 0.12 ; -15.15 after he had gone in to Bath–she'ba.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God,

according to thy loving-kindness:
according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies
blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly 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. Rom. 3.4
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 show 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.
