SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST – PSALM 25:1-10

1To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

2O my God, in you I trust;

let me not be put to shame;

let not my enemies exult over me.

3Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame;

they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

4Make me to know your ways, O Lord;

teach me your paths.

5Lead me in your truth and teach me,

for you are the God of my salvation;

for you I wait all the day long.

6Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love,

for they have been from of old.

7Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions;

according to your steadfast love remember me,

for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!

8Good and upright is the Lord;

therefore he instructs sinners in the way.

9He leads the humble in what is right,

and teaches the humble his way.

10All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,

for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning,

is now, and will be forever. Amen.
