Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
:13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
