Delight Yourself Also in the LORD

Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
(Psalm 37: 3-4)
i delight to do Your will, O my GOD,
And Your law is within my heart.
(Psalm 40:8)

Have mercy upon me, O GOD,
According to Your lovingkindness,
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

For i acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have i sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight...
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

Purge me...Wash me...Make me hear joy and gladness...
Create in me a clean heart, O GOD,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me...

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous SPIRIT.
For You do not desire sacrifice, or else i would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of GOD are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart --
These, O GOD, You will not despise.
(Psalm 51: 1-4, 6, 7-10, 12, 16-17)
