Psalms 32:1-11

(Of David’s; meditative.) 32  Happy he who has transgression forgiven, sin covered up; 2*  Happy a man for whom Jehovah does not count guilt and who has no fraud at heart. 3  When I was silent my bones were wearing out with my roaring all day, 4**  Because by day and by night your hand lay heavy on me, I was double-baked with summer droughts. [Selah] 5*  I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my guilt, I said “I will avow my offenses to Jehovah,” and you forgave the guilt of my sin. (Selah) 6**  Since this has been, let every man of your friendship pray to you in crisis; when waters are poured out in highest flood they shall not reach him. 7*  You are a screen for me; you will keep me safe from distress; you will surround me with shouts of preservation. [Selah] 8*  I will teach you good sense, and instruct you as to the way you should go; I will give advice; my eye is on you. 9*  Do not be like a senseless pony or mule whose wildness, that will not come near you, has to be curbed with bridle and halter. 10  Many are the pains of a wrong-doer, but him who trusts to Jehovah friendliness will encircle. 11  Be glad and gay, right-doers, in Jehovah, and shout, you that have straightforward hearts!
