    • “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.*+ 2   Happy is the man whom Jehovah does not charge with guilt,+ In whose spirit there is no deceit. 3   When I kept silent, my bones wasted away because of my groaning all day long.+ 4   For day and night your hand* was heavy upon me.+ My strength evaporated* like water in the dry summer heat. (Selah) 5   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)
6   This is why every loyal one will pray to you+ While you may yet be found.+ Then even the floodwaters will not reach him. 7   You are a hiding place for me;
You will safeguard me from distress.+ You will surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.+ (Selah)
8   “I will give you insight and instruct you in the way you should go.+ I will give you advice with my eye upon you.+ 9   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.
