|A Psalm of David. A Maskil.|
|1||Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.||Penitential Psalm - Blessed is he whose unrighteousness is forgiven. Psalm 32(v31)|
|2||Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputes no iniquity, |
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
|3||When I declared not my sin, |
my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.
|4||For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me; |
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah
|5||I acknowledged my sin to thee, and I did not hide my iniquity; |
I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD";
then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah
|6||Therefore let every one who is godly offer prayer to thee; |
at a time of distress, in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.
|7||Thou art a hiding place for me, thou preservest me from trouble; |
thou dost encompass me with deliverance. Selah
|8||I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; |
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
|9||Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, |
which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not keep with you.
|10||Many are the pangs of the wicked; |
but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the LORD.
|11||Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, |
and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
