To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: According unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2

Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.

3

11

Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy holy spirit from me.

12

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; And uphold me with thy free spirit.

13

14

15

O Lord, open thou my lips; And my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
