Psalms 32 (asv)

Psalms 32 (asv)

A Psalm of David. Maschil.

32:1Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,

Whose sin is covered.

32:2Blessed is the man unto whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity,

And in whose spirit there is no guile.

32:3When I kept silence, my bones wasted away

Through my groaning all the day long.

32:4For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me:

My moisture was changed as with the drought of summer.


32:5I acknowledged my sin unto thee,

And mine iniquity did I not hide:

I said, I will confess my transgressions unto Jehovah;

And thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.


32:6For this let every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found:

Surely when the great waters overflow they shall not reach unto him.

32:7Thou art my hiding-place; thou wilt preserve me from trouble;

Thou wilt compass me about with songs of deliverance.


32:8I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:

I will counsel thee with mine eye upon thee.

32:9Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding;

Whose trappings must be bit and bridle to hold them in,

Else they will not come near unto thee.

32:10Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;

But he that trusteth in Jehovah, lovingkindness shall compass him about.

32:11Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous;

And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
