By David. A contemplative psalm.1 Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2Blessed is the man to whom Jehovah doesn't impute iniquity,
in whose spirit there is no deceit. ▼
3When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4For day and night your hand was heavy on me.
My strength was sapped in the heat of summer.
5I acknowledged my sin to you.
I did not hide my iniquity.
I said, I will confess my transgressions to Jehovah,
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
6For this, let everyone who is godly pray to you in a time when you may be found.
Surely when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach to him.
7You are my hiding place.
You will preserve me from trouble.
You will surround me with songs of deliverance.
8I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go.
I will counsel you with my eye on you.
9Do not be like the horse, or like the mule, which have no understanding,
who are controlled by bit and bridle, or else they will not come near to you.
10Many sorrows come to the wicked,
but loving kindness shall surround him who trusts in Jehovah.
11Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, you righteous!
Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart!
