Good and upright is the Lord, who shows sinners the way,
Guides the humble rightly, and teaches the humble the way.
All the paths of the Lord are faithful love
toward those who honor the covenant demands.
For the sake of your name, Lord, pardon my guilt, though it is great.
Who are those who fear the Lord? God shows them the way to choose.
They live well and prosper, and their descendants inherit the land.
The counsel of the Lord belongs to the faithful; the covenant instructs them.
My eyes are ever upon the Lord, who frees my feet from the snare.
Psalm 25 continued – verses 8-15
