Psalm 32 King James Version

<< Psalm 31 | Psalm 32 | Psalm 33 >>

The Blessedness of Forgiveness

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2  Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in 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. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6  For this shall every one that is godly pray 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  Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8  I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide [1] 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  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he 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.
