Psalms 51

David prayeth for remission of sins, whereof he maketh a deep confession.

Psalms 51:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid, when the Prophet Nathan came vnto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.} Haue mercie vpon me, O God, according to thy louing kindnes: according to the multitude of thy compassions put away mine iniquities. Psalms 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquitie, and clense me from my sinne. Psalms 51:3 For I know mine iniquities, and my sinne is euer before me. Psalms 51:4 Against thee, against thee onely haue I sinned, and done euill in thy sight, that thou mayest be iust when thou speakest, and pure when thou iudgest. Psalms 51:5 Beholde, I was borne in iniquitie, and in sinne hath my mother conceiued me.

He prayeth for sanctification.

Psalms 51:6 Beholde, thou louest trueth in the inwarde affections: therefore hast thou taught mee wisedome in the secret of mine heart. Psalms 51:7 Purge me with hyssope, & I shalbe cleane: wash me, and I shalbe whiter then snowe. Psalms 51:8 Make me to heare ioye and gladnes, that the bones, which thou hast broken, may reioyce. Psalms 51:9 Hide thy face from my sinnes, and put away all mine iniquities. Psalms 51:10 Create in mee a cleane heart, O God, and renue a right spirit within me. Psalms 51:11 Cast mee not away from thy presence, and take not thine holy Spirit from me. Psalms 51:12 Restore to me the ioy of thy saluation, and stablish me with thy free Spirit. Psalms 51:13 Then shall I teache thy wayes vnto the wicked, and sinners shalbe conuerted vnto thee. Psalms 51:14 Deliuer me from blood, O God, which art the God of my saluation, and my tongue shall sing ioyfully of thy righteousnes. Psalms 51:15 Open thou my lippes, O Lorde, and my mouth shall shewe foorth thy praise.

God delighteth not in sacrifice, but in sincerity.

Psalms 51:16 For thou desirest no sacrifice, though I would giue it: thou delitest not in burnt offering. Psalms 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a contrite spirit: a contrite and a broken heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

He prayeth for the Church.

Psalms 51:18 Bee fauourable vnto Zion for thy good pleasure: builde the walles of Ierusalem. Psalms 51:19 Then shalt thou accept ye sacrifices of righteousnes, euen the burnt offering and oblation: then shall they offer calues vpon thine altar.
