Psalm 32
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

The Joy of Forgiveness
(Romans 4:1–12)

1To David, wisdom. Happy the taking away of transgression, the covering of sin.

2Happy the man Jehovah will not reckon sin to him, and no deceit in his spirit.

3If I was silent, my bones fell away in my groaning all the day.

4For day and night thy hand will be heavy upon me: my moisture was turned into the dryness of summer. Silence.

5I will make known to thee my sin, and mine iniquity I hid not I said, I will confess upon my transgression to Jehovah; and thou didst take away the iniquity of my sin. Silence.

6For this all the godly shall pray to thee for the time of finding: only for the inundation of many waters they shall not draw near to him.

7Thou a covering to me, from straits thou wilt watch me; thou wilt surround me with rejoicings of deliverance. Silence.

8I will make thee wise, and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will counsel mine eyes upon thee.

9Ye shall not be as the horse, as the mule, not understanding: with bit and curb to stop his youth, not drawing near to thee.

10Many the sorrows to the unjust one: and he trusting in Jehovah, mercy shall surround him.

11Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye just: and shout for joy, all ye upright of heart.
