Psalm 32

Forgiveness of the agony

and enslavement of sins

A maskil of David.

Blessed is the one whose lawless acts are forgiven.
      His sins have been taken away.
2 Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord never counts against him.
      He doesn’t want to cheat anyone.
3 When I kept silent about my sin,
 my body became weak
 because I groaned all day long.
4 Day and night
 your heavy hand punished me.
   I became weaker and weaker
 as I do in the heat of summer.
5 Then I admitted my sin to you.
      I didn’t cover up the wrong I had done.
   I said, “I will admit my lawless acts to the Lord.”
      And you forgave the guilt of my sin.

6 Let everyone who is godly pray to you
      while they can still look to you.
   When troubles come like a flood,
      they certainly won’t reach those who are godly.

7 You are my hiding place.
      You will keep me safe from trouble.
   You will surround me with songs sung by those who praise you
      because you save your people.

8 I will guide you and teach you the way you should go.
      I will give you good advice and watch over you.
9 Don’t be like the horse or the mule.
      They can’t understand anything.
   They have to be controlled by bits and bridles.
      If they aren’t, they won’t come to you.

10 Sinful people have all kinds of trouble.
      But the Lord’s faithful love
      is all around those who trust in him.

 11 Be glad because of what the Lord has done for you.
      Be joyful, you who do what is right!
      Sing, all of you whose hearts are honest!
