1 (A Psalm of David, aMaschil.) Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD cimputeth not iniquity, and bin whose spirit there is no guile.
3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. dI said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6 For fthis shall every one that is godly epray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. 7 gThou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will hinstruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. 10 iMany sorrows shall be to the wicked: but jhe that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
