Tehillim - Psalms 32


1[A Psalm] of David. Maschil.Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is pardoned.
2Happy is the man unto whom the Lord counteth not iniquity,And in whose spirit there is no guile.
3When I kept silence, my bones wore away Through my groaning all the day long.
4For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me;My sap was turned as in the droughts of summer.Selah
5I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid;I said: ‘I will make confession concerning my transgressions unto the Lord’—And Thou, Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.Selah
6For this let every one that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found;Surely, when the great waters overflow, they will not reach unto him.
7Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from the adversary;With songs of deliverance Thou wilt compass me about.Selah
8‘I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go;I will give counsel, Mine eye being upon thee.’
9Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding;Whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle,That they come not near unto thee.
10Many are the sorrows of the wicked;But he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy compasseth him about.
11Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous;And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
