Psalm 32
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1AN INSTRUCTION OF DAVID. O the blessedness of him whose transgression [is] forgiven, "" Whose sin is covered.

2O the blessedness of a man, "" To whom YHWH does not impute iniquity, "" And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3When I have kept silence, my bones have become old, "" Through my roaring all the day.

4When by day and by night Your hand is heavy on me, "" My moisture has been changed "" Into the droughts of summer. Selah.

5I cause You to know my sin, "" And I have not covered my iniquity. I have said, “I confess to YHWH concerning My transgressions,” "" And You have taken away the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

6For every saintly one prays this to You, "" In the time to find [You]. Surely at an overflowing of many waters, "" They do not come to him.

7You [are] a hiding place for me, "" You keep me from distress, "" Surround me [with] songs of deliverance. Selah.

8I cause you to act wisely, "" And direct you in the way that you go, "" I cause My eye to take counsel concerning you.

9Do not be as a horse—as a mule, "" Without understanding, "" With bridle and bit, its ornaments, to curb, "" Not to come near to you.

10Many [are] the pains of the wicked; As for him who is trusting in YHWH, "" Kindness surrounds him.

11Be glad in YHWH, and rejoice, you righteous, "" And sing, all you upright of heart!
