Look upon me, have pity on me, for I am alone and afflicted.
Relieve the troubles of my heart; bring me out of my distress.
Put an end to my affliction and suffering; take away all my sins.
See how many are my enemies, see how fiercely they hate me.
Preserve my life and rescue me;
do not let me be disgraced, for I trust in you.
Let honesty and virtue preserve me; I wait for you, O Lord.
Psalm 25 continued – verses 16-21
