12 Create a clean heart in me, O God. And renew an upright spirit within my inmost being.
13 Do not cast me away from your face; and do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
14 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and confirm me with an unsurpassed spirit.
15 I will teach the unjust your ways, and the impious will be converted to you.
16 Free me from blood, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue will extol your justice.
17 O Lord, you will open my lips, and my mouth will announce your praise.
18 For if you had desired sacrifice, I would certainly have given it, but with holocausts, you will not be delighted.
19 A crushed spirit is a sacrifice to God. A contrite and humbled heart, O God, you will not spurn.
23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was defiled among the Gentiles, which you have defiled in their midst. So may the Gentiles know that I am the Lord, says the Lord of hosts, when I will have been sanctified in you, before their eyes.
24 Certainly, I will take you away from the Gentiles, and I will gather you together from all the lands, and I will lead you into your own land.
25 And I will pour clean water over you, and you shall be cleansed from all your filth, and I will cleanse you from all your idols.
26 And I will give to you a new heart, and I will place in you a new spirit. And I will take away the heart of stone from your body, and I will give to you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will place my Spirit in your midst. And I will act so that you may walk in my precepts and keep my judgments, and so that you may fulfill them.
28 And you shall live in the land that I gave to your fathers. And you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
