32 Our God, you bless everyone whose sins you forgive and wipe away. 2 You bless them by saying, “You told me your sins, without trying to hide them, and now I forgive you.”
3 Before I confessed my sins, my bones felt limp, and I groaned all day long. 4 Night and day your hand weighed heavily on me, and my strength was gone as in the summer heat.
5 So I confessed my sins and told them all to you. I said, “I’ll tell the Lord each one of my sins.” Then you forgave me and took away my guilt.
6 We worship you, Lord, and we should always pray whenever we find out that we have sinned.[a] Then we won’t be swept away by a raging flood. 7 You are my hiding place! You protect me from trouble, and you put songs in my heart because you have saved me.
8 You said to me, “I will point out the road that you should follow. I will be your teacher and watch over you. 9 Don’t be stupid like horses and mules that must be led with ropes to make them obey.”
10 All kinds of troubles will strike the wicked, but your kindness shields those who trust you, Lord. 11 And so your good people should celebrate and shout.
32.6whenever. . . sinned: Hebrew “at a time of finding only.”
