Psalm 32 Blessed Is He Who Is Forgiven

Psalm 32

Blessed Is He Who Is Forgiven


1 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.

Psalm 32 Blessed Is He Who Is Forgiven

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.

5 I acknowledged my sin to Thee,

   and I did not hide my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my trangressions to the Lord”;

   then Thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin.

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.

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!

– Psalm 32
