Hour of Mercy: Psalm 32 RSV-CE

1 <A Psalm of David. A Maskil.> Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I declared not my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to thee, and I did not hide my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to
the LORD”; then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah
6 Therefore let every one who is godly offer prayer to thee; at a time of distress, in the rush of great waters,
they shall not reach him.
7 Thou art a hiding place for me, thou preservest me from trouble; thou dost encompass me with
deliverance. Selah
8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will
not keep with you.
10 Many are the pangs of the wicked; but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the LORD.
11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
