[A Psalm] of David, Maschil.
7919 56 Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven,7 [whose] sin [is] covered.7
Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth4 not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.
When I kept silence,52 my bones waxed old1 through my roaring all the day long.
For day and night thy hand was heavy4 upon me: my moisture is turned8 into the drought of summer. Selah.
I acknowledged55 my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid.14 I said,1 I will confess55 my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest1 the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
For this shall every one that is godly pray101 unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found:2 surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh55 unto him.
Thou [art] my hiding place; thou shalt preserve4 me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about25 with songs of deliverance. Selah.
I will instruct55 thee and teach55 thee in the way which thou shalt go:4 I will guide4 thee with mine eye.
Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding:53 whose mouth must be held2 in with bit and bridle, lest they come near2 unto thee.
Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that trusteth6 in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.25
Be glad3 in the LORD, and rejoice,3 ye righteous: and shout for joy,54 all [ye that are] upright in heart.
