Happy are those whose sins are forgiven, 1 whose wrongs are pardoned.
Happy is the one whom the Lord does not accuse of doing wrong and who is free from all deceit.
When I did not confess my sins, I was worn out from crying all day long.
Day and night you punished me, Lord; my strength was completely drained, as moisture is dried up by the summer heat.
Then I confessed my sins to you; I did not conceal my wrongdoings. I decided to confess them to you, and you forgave all my sins.
So all your loyal people should pray to you in times of need; a when a great flood of trouble comes rushing in, it will not reach them.
You are my hiding place; you will save me from trouble. I sing aloud of your salvation, because you protect me.
