Psalm 25 Of David.

In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.

I trust in you;
    do not let me be put to shame,
    nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one who hopes in you
    will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
    who are treacherous without cause.

Show me your ways, Lord,
    teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my Savior,
    and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,
    for they are from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth
    and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
    for you, Lord, are good.

Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
    and teaches them his way.
10 All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful
    toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.

Background

The psalmist presents the following petitions: he prays that he might triumph over his enemies (vv. 1–3), he requests that he might be taught and guided in the way of truth (vv. 4, 5), and he asks that God might forgive his sins (vv. 6, 7). It is to be observed that his petitions proceed from the lesser to the greater, from the outer to the inner, and from temporal needs to eternal necessities. How often this order is followed in the prayers of God’s people! First, the believer is driven to his knees by circumstances that are about to overwhelm him. As he prays about them, he is reminded of the necessity of living according to truth and the wisdom of God[1]
