Psalms 32

A Psalm of David, Maschil. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. {A Psalm...: or, A Psalm of David giving instruction} Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. When I kept silence, my bones became old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to thee, and my iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. For this shall every one that is godly pray to thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come near to him. {when...: Heb. of finding}

Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with my eye. {guide...: Heb. counsel thee, mine eye shall be upon thee} Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near to thee. 10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall surround him. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
