Psalm 51:1; Psalm 103:17; Isaiah 63:15

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when vNathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

51  wHave mercy on me,1 O God,

according to your steadfast love;

according to your xabundant mercy

yblot out my transgressions.


17  But ythe steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on pthose who fear him,

and his righteousness to zchildren's children,


Prayer for Mercy

15  fLook down from heaven and see,

gfrom your holy and beautiful1 habitation.

Where are hyour zeal and your might?

The stirring of your inner parts and your compassion

are held back from me.
