Psalms - Chapter 32 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Psalm of David. A Contemplation. {cf2super [25]} Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
  • 2. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
  • 3. When I kept silent, my bones grew old Through my groaning all the day long.
  • 4. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
  • 5. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
  • 6. For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him.
  • 7. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
  • 8. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
  • 9. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.
  • 10. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
  • 11. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
