Of David. A Maskil.
whose sin is covered.
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
through my groaning all day long.
my strength was dried upa as by the heat of summer. Selah
and I did not hide my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah
offer prayer to you;
at a time of distress,b the rush of mighty waters
shall not reach them.
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with glad cries of deliverance. Selah
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
whose temper must be curbed with bit and bridle,
else it will not stay near you.
but steadfast love surrounds those who trust in the Lord.
and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.
