Psalm 32

Psalm 32

Of David. A maskil.a

Blessed is the one

whose transgressions are forgiven,

whose sins are covered.a

Blessed is the one

whose sin the Lord does not count against themb

and in whose spirit is no deceit.c

When I kept silent,d

my bones wasted awaye

through my groaningf all day long.

For day and night

your hand was heavyg on me;

my strength was sappedh

as in the heat of summer.b

Then I acknowledged my sin to you

and did not cover up my iniquity.i

I said, “I will confessj

my transgressionsk to the Lord.”

And you forgave

the guilt of my sin.l

Therefore let all the faithful pray to you

while you may be found;m

surely the risingn of the mighty waterso

will not reach them.p

You are my hiding place;q

you will protect me from troubler

and surround me with songs of deliverance.s

I will instructt you and teach youu in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my loving eye onv you.

Do not be like the horse or the mule,

which have no understanding

but must be controlled by bit and bridlew

or they will not come to you.

10 Many are the woes of the wicked,x

but the Lord’s unfailing love

surrounds the one who trustsy in him.

11 Rejoice in the Lordz and be glad, you righteous;

sing, all you who are upright in heart!
