Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 How happy is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered! 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 How happy is the man the Lord does not charge with sin, and in whose spirit is no deceit! 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent, my bones became brittle from my groaning all day long. 3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my strength was drained as in the summer's heat. Selah 4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. "Selah"
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not conceal my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," and You took away the guilt of my sin. Selah 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"-- and you forgave the guilt of my sin. "Selah"
6 Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to You at a time that You may be found. When great floodwaters come, they will not reach him. 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him.
7 You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance. Selah 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "Selah"
8 I will instruct you and show you the way to go; with My eye on you, I will give counsel. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like a horse or mule, without understanding, that must be controlled with bit and bridle, or else it will not come near you. 9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
10 Many pains come to the wicked, but the one who trusts in the Lord will have faithful love surrounding him. 10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous ones; shout for joy, all you upright in heart. 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!
