1: [A Psalm] of David, Maschil. Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered. 2: Blessed [is] the man to whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile. 3: When I kept silence, my bones became old through my roaring all the day long. 4: For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drouth of summer. Selah. 5: I acknowledged my sin to thee, and my iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6: For this shall every one that is godly pray to thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh to him. 7: Thou [art] my hiding place; thou wilt preserve me from trouble; thou wilt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8: I will instruct thee, and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with my 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 to thee. 10: Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall encompass him. 11: Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.
