Psalm 51:15–20

Deliver me from death, O God,   and my tongue shall sing of your righteousness,

O God of my salvation.

Open my lips, O Lord,   and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Had you desired it, I would have offered sacrifice,   but you take no delight in burnt offerings.

The sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit;   a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Be favorable and gracious to Zion,   and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.

Then you will be pleased with the appointed sacrifices, with burnt offerings and oblations;   then shall they offer young bullocks upon your altar.
