A Psalm of David. A Maskil.

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

When I declared not my sin, my body wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried upo as by the heat of summer. [Selah]

I acknowledged my sin to thee,

and I did not hide my iniquity;

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

then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. [Selah]

Therefore let every one who is godly

offer prayer to thee;

at a time of distress,p in the rush of great waters,

they shall not reach him.

Thou art a hiding place for me,

thou preservest me from trouble;

thou dost encompass me with deliverance. * [Selah]

I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

else it will not keep with you.

10 Many are the pangs of the wicked;

but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the Lord.

11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,

and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!

The name of the God of Jacob protect you!

May he send you help from the sanctuary,

and give you support from Zion!

May he remember all your offerings,

and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! [Selah]

May he grant you your heart’s desire,

and fulfil all your plans!

May we shout for joy over your victory,

and in the name of our God set up our banners!

May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!

Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;

he will answer him from his holy heaven

with mighty victories by his right hand.

Some boast of chariots, and some of horses;

but we boast of the name of the Lord our God.

They will collapse and fall;

but we shall rise and stand upright.

Give victory to the king, O Lord;

answer us when we call.l


To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

In thy strength the king rejoices, O Lord;

and in thy help how greatly he exults!

Thou hast given him his heart’s desire,

and hast not withheld the request of his lips. [Selah]

For thou dost meet him with goodly blessings;

thou dost set a crown of fine gold upon his head.

He asked life of thee; thou gavest it to him,

length of days for ever and ever.

His glory is great through thy help;

splendor and majesty thou dost bestow upon him.

Yea, thou dost make him most blessed for ever;

thou dost make him glad with the joy of thy presence.

For the king trusts in the Lord;

and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.

Your hand will find out all your enemies;

your right hand will find out those who hate you.

You will make them as a blazing oven

when you appear.

The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath;

and fire will consume them.

10 You will destroy their offspring from the earth,

and their children from among the sons of men.

11 If they plan evil against you,

if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.

12 For you will put them to flight;

you will aim at their faces with your bows.

13 Be exalted, O Lord, in thy strength!

We will sing and praise thy power.
