GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the person whose disobedience is forgiven and whose sin is pardoned. 1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the person whom the LORD no longer accuses of sin and who has no deceitful thoughts. 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.

5 I made my sins known to you, and I did not cover up my guilt. I decided to confess them to you, O LORD. Then you forgave all my sins. 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 For this reason let all godly people pray to you when you may be found. Then raging floodwater will not reach them. 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.
