“Be mindful of your mercy!
Be mindful of your steadfast love!
They have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth!
Do not remember my transgressions!
According to your steadfast love,
For your goodness’ sake!
David wanted Yahweh to be merciful. He wanted him to remember his love from long ago. Yahweh was not to remember the sins of his youth or other transgressions. However, he was to remember only love because Yahweh is good.
