32 How blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 How blessed is the person against whom the Lord does not charge iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent about my sin,[b] my body[c] wasted away by my groaning all day long. 4 For your hand was heavy upon me day and night; my strength was exhausted as in a summer drought. Interlude
5 My sin I acknowledged to you; my iniquity I did not hide. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.” And you forgave the guilt of my sin! Interlude
6 Therefore every godly person should pray to you at such a time.[d] Surely a flood of great waters will not reach him. 7 You are my hiding place; you will deliver me from trouble and surround me with shouts of deliverance. Interlude
8 I will instruct you and teach you concerning the path you should walk; I will direct you with my eye. 9 Don’t be like a horse or mule, without understanding. They are held in check by a bit and bridle in their mouths; otherwise they will not remain near you.
10 The wicked have many sorrows, but gracious love surrounds those who trust in the Lord. 11 Righteous ones, be glad in the Lord and rejoice! Shout for joy, all of you who are upright in heart!
