5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.
6 Remember, O LORD, aYour tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old.
7 Do not remember athe sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; bAccording to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD.
8 Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
9 The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.
10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.
