11How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered !
How blessed is the man to whom the LORD2does not imputeiniquity, And in whose spiritthere is 3nodeceit !
3When4I keptsilent about my sin, 5my abodywastedaway Through my b6groaningallday long.
For day and night7Your hand was heavy upon me; My c8vitality was drained away as with the feverheat of summer. dSelah.
I 9acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I 10did not hide ; I said, "11I will confess my transgressions to the LORD "; And You 12forgave the eguilt of my sin. Selah.
6Therefore , let everyone who is godlypray to You f13in a time when You may be found ; Surely14in a flood of greatwaters they will not reach him.
You are 15my hidingplace ; You 16preserve me from trouble ; You surround me with g17songs of deliverance. Selah.
I will 18instruct you and teach you in the waywhich you should go ; I will counsel you 19with My eye upon you.
Do not be 20as the horse or as the mule which havenounderstanding, Whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not comenear to you.
10Many are the 21sorrows of the wicked, But 22he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him.
Be 23glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteousones ; And shout for joy, all you who are 24upright in heart.
