||A Psalm of David, Maschil.
1 aBlessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord bimputeth not iniquity,
And cin whose spirit there is no guile.
3 When I kept silence, dmy bones waxed old
Through my eroaring all the day long.
4 For day and night thy fhand was heavy upon me:
My gmoisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5 I hacknowledged my sin unto thee,
And mine iniquity have I not hid.
iI said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord;
And thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
Surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
Thou shalt compass me about with msongs of deliverance. Selah.
†I will guide thee with mine eye.
9 nBe ye not as the horse,
Or as the mule, which have no understanding:
oWhose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle,
Lest they come near unto thee.
10 pMany sorrows shall be to the wicked:
But qhe that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.
11 rBe glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous:
