1[To the chiefe Musician. A Psalme of Dauid, when Nathan the Prophet came vnto him, after hee had gone in to Bath-sheba.] Haue mercie vpon mee, O God, according to thy louing kindnesse: according vnto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2Wash mee throughly from mine iniquitie, and clense me from my sinne. 3For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sinne is euer before mee.4Against thee, thee onely haue I sinned, and done this euill in thy sight: that thou mightest bee iustified when thou speakest, and be cleare when thou iudgest. 5Behold, I was shapen in iniquitie: and in sinne did my mother conceiue me.
