David Confesses His Lawlessness
A psalm to David; for understanding.1 Blessed be whose [2were forgiven 1lawless deeds], and whose [2were covered over 1sins]. 2 Blessed be the man to whom in no way the lord should impute sin, nor is [2in 3his mouth 1treachery]. 3 For I kept quiet; [2were grown old 1my bones] from my crying out the entire day. 4 For day and night [2presses 3upon 4me 1your hand]. I was turned to misery by the [2sticking 3me 1thorn]. 5 My lawlessness I made known, and my sin I did not cover. I said, I will declare openly against myself my lawlessness to the lord. And you forgave the impiety of my heart. PAUSE. 6 For this [3shall pray 4to 5you 1every 2sacred one] in [2time 1a fit]; only in a flood of waters many [3to 4him 1shall not 2approach]. 7 You are my refuge from affliction encompassing me; my leap for joy to ransom me from the ones encircling me. PAUSE. 8 I will bring understanding to you, and I will instruct you in this way which you shall go. I will stay [2upon 3you 1my eyes]. 9 Do not become as a horse and mule in which there is no understanding; but with muzzle and bridle [2their jaws 1may you squeeze] of the ones not approaching to you. 10 Many are the whips for the sinner; [4the one 1but 5hoping 6upon 7the lord 2mercy 3shall encircle]. 11 Be glad upon the lord, and exult, O just ones! and let [6boast 1all 2the ones 3straight 4in the 5heart]!
