Happy is the person whose sins are forgiven, whose wrongs are pardoned.
Happy is the person whom the Lord does not consider guilty and in whom there is nothing false.
When I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me. I moaned all day long.
Day and night you punished me. My strength was gone as in the summer heat.Selah
Then I confessed my sins to you and didn't hide my guilt. I said, "I will confess my sins to the Lord," and you forgave my guilt.Selah
For this reason, all who obey you should pray to you while they still can. When troubles rise like a flood, they will not reach them.
