When I kept silence , my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
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 godlypray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found : surely in the floods of greatwaters they shall not come nigh unto him.
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 waywhich thou shalt go : I will guidea 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.
10Manysorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD,mercy shall compass him about.
Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice , ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
