Psalms 32

Blessedness of Forgiveness and of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David. A
Possibly Contemplative, or Didactic, or Skillful Psalm

1 b  How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
2How blessed is the man to whom the  Lord c  does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is d  no deceit!

3When e  I kept silent about my sin f  my
Or bones, substance
body wasted away
Through my
Lit roaring
i  groaning all day long.
4For day and night j  Your hand was heavy upon me;
Lit life juices were turned into the drought of summer
l  vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer.
Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interlude
5I n  acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I o  did not hide;
I said p  I will confess my transgressions to the  Lord”;
And You q  forgave the
Or iniquity
guilt of my sin. Selah.
6Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You
Lit in a time of finding out
t  in a time when You may be found;
Surely u  in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
7You are v  my hiding place; You w  preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with
Or shouts
y  songs of deliverance. Selah.

8I will z  instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;
I will counsel you aa  with My eye upon you.
9Do not be ab  as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding,
Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check,
Otherwise they will not come near to you.
10Many are the ac  sorrows of the wicked,
But ad  he who trusts in the  Lord, lovingkindness shall surround him.
11Be ae  glad in the  Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are af  upright in heart.
