Psalm 32

The Joy of Forgiveness

Of David. A Maskil.

1

Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

2

Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

 

3

While I kept silence, my body wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

4

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.Selah

 

5

Then 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 guilt of my sin.Selah

 

6

Therefore let all who are faithful

offer prayer to you;

at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters

shall not reach them.

7

You are a hiding place for me;

you preserve me from trouble;

you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.Selah
