Acquit me of hidden [faults.] 13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous [sins;] Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
