Psalm 32:1-11


Psa 32:1  Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psa 32:2  Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

Psa 32:3  For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.

Psa 32:4  For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.

Psa 32:5  I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD," and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Psa 32:6  Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.

Psa 32:7  You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.  

Psa 32:8  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

Psa 32:9  Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.

Psa 32:10  Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the LORD.

Psa 32:11  Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
