4 May all those who act unjustly over nothing be confounded. O Lord, demonstrate your ways to me, and teach me your paths.
5 Direct me in your truth, and teach me. For you are God, my Saviour, and I remain with you all day long.
6 O Lord, remember your compassion and your mercies, which are from ages past.
7 Do not remember the offenses of my youth and my ignorances. Remember me according to your mercy, because of your goodness, O Lord.
8 The Lord is sweet and righteous. Because of this, he will grant a law to those who fall short in the way.
9 He will direct the mild in judgment. He will teach the meek his ways.
10 All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to those who yearn for his covenant and his testimonies.
11 Because of your name, O Lord, you will pardon my sin, for it is great.
12 Which is the man who fears the Lord? He has established a law for him, on the way that he has chosen.
13 His soul will dwell upon good things, and his offspring will inherit the earth.
14 The Lord is a firmament to those who fear him, and his covenant will be made manifest to them.
14 Behold, the days are approaching, says the Lord, when I will fulfill the good word that I have spoken to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
15 In those days and at that time, I will cause the seedling of justice to spring up from David, and he will accomplish judgment and justice upon the earth.
16 In those days, Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will live in confidence. And this is the name that they will call him: 'The Lord, our Just One.'
