Psalm 51:16-18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

16 You do not want a sacrifice, or I would give it;
You are not pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifice pleasing to God is[a] a broken spirit.
God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.

18 In Your good pleasure, cause Zion to prosper;
build[b] the walls of Jerusalem.
