    Psa 25:1 ΒΆ [[[A Psalm] of David.]] Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.


    Psa 25:2 * O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.


    Psa 25:3 * Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.


    Psa 25:4 * Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.


    Psa 25:5 * Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.


    Psa 25:6 * Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] ever of old.


    Psa 25:7 * Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

    (KJV) Psalms 51:1
    1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.]] Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.



    Psa 25:8 * Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.


    Psa 25:9 * The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.


    Psa 25:10 * All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.


    Psa 25:11 * For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great.


    Psa 25:12 * What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose.


    Psa 25:13 * His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.


    Psa 25:14 * The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.


    Psa 25:15 * Mine eyes [are] ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.


    Psa 25:16 * Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am] desolate and afflicted.


    Psa 25:17 * The troubles of my heart are enlarged: [O] bring thou me out of my distresses.


    Psa 25:18 * Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.


    Psa 25:19 * Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.


    Psa 25:20 * O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.


    Psa 25:21 * Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.


    Psa 25:22 * Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

    Well the first verses give the impression of an alphabetic/thematic pattern. Ashamed goes back to Genesis 3.

    You lost me, Gil -- what's your point?
    We sing these first verses in church, and can be very impressive. OMG, I Trust in Thee, Let me not be ashamed, Let not my enemies triumph over me! Great song!
    Dux allows: "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out the matter". Pr25:2

    Definitely! But maybe there's more to it.

    I need to read it thoroughly. It does have 22 verses.
    I look at it as someone who has an appreciation for art to try to understand the meaning.

    Compare verse 7 to psalm 51:1 spoke 7:

    Psa 25:7 * Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

    (KJV) Psalms 51:1
    1 [[To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.]] Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
