Psalms 32:1-11


  • Happy are the ones forgiven

    • “I confessed my sin to you” (5)

    • God gives you insight (8)

Of David. Mas′kil.* 32  Happy is the one whose transgression is pardoned, whose sin is covered.*+   Happy is the man whom Jehovah does not charge with guilt,+ In whose spirit there is no deceit.   When I kept silent, my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long.+   For day and night your hand* was heavy upon me.+ My strength evaporated* like water in the dry summer heat. (Selah)   Finally I confessed my sin to you; I did not cover my error.+ I said: “I will confess my transgressions to Jehovah.”+ And you pardoned the error of my sins.+ (Selah)   This is why every loyal one will pray to you+ While you may yet be found.+ Then even the floodwaters will not reach him.   You are a hiding place for me; You will safeguard me from distress.+ You will surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.+ (Selah)   “I will give you insight and instruct you in the way you should go.+ I will give you advice with my eye upon you.+   Do not become like a horse or a mule, without understanding,+ Whose spiritedness must be controlled with a bridle or a halter Before it will come near to you.” 10  Many are the pains of the wicked; But the one trusting in Jehovah is surrounded by His loyal love.+ 11  Rejoice in Jehovah and be joyful, you righteous ones; Shout joyfully, all you who are upright in heart.
