A Psalm of David. A 1Contemplation.
1 Blessed is he whose atransgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
And cin whose spirit there is no deceit.
Through my groaning all the day long.
4 For day and night Your dhand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer.
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
eI said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
7 hYou are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with isongs of deliverance.
I will guide you with My eye.
9 Do not be like the jhorse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.
10 kMany sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But lhe who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
11 mBe glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
