Bible: Psalm 51:1-4

Psalm 51 1 

51:1 For the music director; a psalm of David, written when Nathan the prophet confronted him after David’s affair with Bathsheba. 2 

Have mercy on me, O God, because of 3  your loyal love!

Because of 4  your great compassion, wipe away my rebellious acts! 5 

51:2 Wash away my wrongdoing! 6 

Cleanse me of my sin! 7 

51:3 For I am aware of 8  my rebellious acts;

I am forever conscious of my sin. 9 

51:4 Against you – you above all 10  – I have sinned;

I have done what is evil in your sight.

So 11  you are just when you confront me; 12 

you are right when you condemn me. 13
