By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.
[ Psalm 51 ] [ For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba. ] Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
But I pray to you, Lord, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
