Psalm 51:1-17

This morning our pastor referenced Psalm 51:10 in church.  
When I looked at this chapter I was 
lead to share w/ you verses 1-17. 

1 Have mercy on me, O God, 
   according to your unfailing love; 
according to your great compassion 
   blot out my transgressions. 

2 Wash away all my iniquity 

   and cleanse me from my sin.

 3 For I know my transgressions, 
   and my sin is always before me. 

4 Against you, you only, have I sinned 

   and done what is evil in your sight; 
so you are right in your verdict 
   and justified when you judge. 

5 Surely I was sinful at birth, 

   sinful from the time my mother conceived me. 

6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; 

   you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

 7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; 
   wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 

8 Let me hear joy and gladness; 

   let the bones you have crushed rejoice. 

9 Hide your face from my sins 

   and blot out all my iniquity.

 10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, 
   and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 

11 Do not cast me from your presence 

   or take your Holy Spirit from me. 

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation 

   and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, 
   so that sinners will turn back to you. 

14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, 

   you who are God my Savior, 
   and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. 

15 Open my lips, Lord, 

   and my mouth will declare your praise. 

16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; 

   you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. 

17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; 

   a broken and contrite heart 
   you, God, will not despise.
