32:1 A Psalm of David. Maschil. Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is pardoned.

32:2 Happy is the man unto whom the Lord counteth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

32:3 When I kept silence, my bones wore away through my groaning all the day long.

32:4 For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me; my sap was turned as in the droughts of summer. Selah

32:5 I 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

32:6 For 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.

32:7 Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from the adversary; with songs of deliverance Thou wilt compass me about. Selah

32:8 'I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go; I will give counsel, Mine eye being upon thee.'

32:9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding; whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, that they come not near unto thee.

32:10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked; but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy compasseth him about.

32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
