Psalm 32

THE JOY OF FORGIVENESS

Of David. A Maskil.

How joyful is the one

whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered!i

How joyful is a person whom

the Lord does not charge with iniquityj

and in whose spirit is no deceit!k

When I kept silent, my bones became brittle

from my groaning all day long.l

For day and night your hand was heavy on me;m

my strength was drainedB

as in the summer’s heat.n

Selah

Then I acknowledged my sin to you

and did not conceal my iniquity.

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

and you forgave the guilt of my sin.o

Selah

Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to you immediately.C,p

When great floodwaters come,

they will not reach him.q

You are my hiding place;r

you protect me from trouble.s

You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.

Selah

I will instruct you and show you the way to go;t

with my eye on you, I will give counsel.u

Do not be like a horse or mule,

without understanding,

that must be controlled with bit and bridle

or else it will not come near you.v

10 Many pains come to the wicked,w

but the one who trusts in the Lord

will have faithful love surrounding him.x

11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice,

you righteous ones;

shout for joy,

all you upright in heart.y

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
