Book First
Chap. 32.
1 Of David: Maschil.1 Blessed [is] the one forgiven [as to] transgression, covered [as to] sin.
2 Blessed [is] the man to whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, and in his spirit [there is] no guile.
3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day.
4 For by day and by night thy hand is heavy upon me; my moisture hath been changed into the droughts of summer. Selah.
5 I make known my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not covered; I said I will confess concerning my transgressions unto Jehovah, and thou hast taken away the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6 Because of this shall every godly one pray unto thee at a time for finding [thee]; surely in a flood of many waters they shall not come unto him.
7 Thou [art] a hiding-place for me; thou preservest me from distress, thou surroundest me with shouts of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go; I will fix mine eye upon thee.
9 Be ye not as a horse [or] as a mule, without understanding: with a bit and bridle his mouth is to be curbed lest he come near unto thee.
10 Many sorrows [are there] to the wicked; but he that trusteth in Jehovah, mercy shall encompass him.
11 Be glad in Jehovah and rejoice, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye upright of heart.
