Psalm 32


Blessedness of Forgiveness and of Trust in God.

A Psalm of David. A Maskil.

1 aHow blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,

Whose sin is covered!

2 How blessed is the man to whom the Lord adoes not impute iniquity,

And in whose spirit there is bno deceit!

3 When aI kept silent about my sin, bmy 1body wasted away

Through my 2cgroaning all day long.

4 For day and night aYour hand was heavy upon me;

My 1bvitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer.


5 I aacknowledged my sin to You,

And my iniquity I bdid not hide;

I said, “cI will confess my transgressions to the Lord”;

And You dforgave the 1guilt of my sin.


6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You 1ain a time when You may be found;

Surely bin a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

7 You are amy hiding place; You bpreserve me from trouble;

You surround me with 1csongs of deliverance.


8 I will ainstruct you and teach you in the way which you should go;

I will counsel you bwith My eye upon you.

9 Do not be aas 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.

10 Many are the asorrows of the wicked,

But bhe who trusts in the Lord, lovingkindness shall surround him.

11 Be aglad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones;

And shout for joy, all you who are bupright in heart.
