Psalm 32
Douay-Rheims Bible

The Providence of God

1{31:1}To David himself, understanding. Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

2{31:2}Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

3{31:3}Because I was silent my bones grew old; whilst I cried out all the day long.

4{31:4}For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: I am turned in my anguish, whilst the thorn is fastened.

5{31:5}I have acknowledged my sin to thee, and my injustice I have not concealed. I said I will confess against my self my injustice to the Lord: and thou hast forgiven the wickedness of my sin.

6{31:6}For this shall every one that is holy pray to thee in a seasonable time. And yet in a flood of many waters, they shall not come nigh unto him.

7{31:7}Thou art my refuge from the trouble which hath encompassed me: my joy, deliver me from them that surround me.

8{31:8}I will give thee understanding, and I will instruct thee in this way, in which thou shalt go: I will fix my eyes upon thee.

9{31:9}Do not become like the horse and the mule, who have no understanding. With bit and bridle bind fast their jaws, who come not near unto thee.

10{31:10}Many are the scourges of the sinner, but mercy shall encompass him that hopeth in the Lord.

11{31:11}Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye just, and glory, all ye right of heart.
