Tehilim Chapter 32

tehilim 016


1. A Psalm of David, A Maskil. Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2. Happy is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3. When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4. For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5. I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the Lord; and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6. For this shall every one who is pious pray to you in a time when you may be found; then surely the floods of great waters shall not come near him.
7. You are my hiding place; you shall preserve me from trouble; you shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8. I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9. Do not be like the horse, or like the mule, which have no understanding; whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they do not come near you.
10. Many are the sorrows of the wicked; but loving kindness shall surround him who trusts in the Lord.
11. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, you righteous; and shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.
