whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!
whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt,*
whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
my body wasted away,
and I groaned all day long.
My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
