Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 51

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 When Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Be gracious unto me, O G-d, according to Thy mercy; according to the multitude of Thy compassions blot out my transgressions.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 For I know my transgressions; and my sin is ever before me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 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 in the right when Thou judgest.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Behold, Thou desirest truth in the inward parts; make me, therefore, to know wisdom in mine inmost heart.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which Thou hast crushed may rejoice.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Create me a clean heart, O G-d; and renew a stedfast spirit within me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy holy spirit from me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and let a willing spirit uphold me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways; and sinners shall return unto Thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O G-d, Thou G-d of my salvation; so shall my tongue sing aloud of Thy righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 O L-rd, open Thou my lips; and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 For Thou delightest not in sacrifice, else would I give it; Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 The sacrifices of G-d are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O G-d, Thou wilt not despise.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 Do good in Thy favour unto Zion; build Thou the walls of Jerusalem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Then wilt Thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt-offering and whole offering; then will they offer bullocks upon Thine altar.
