A Psalm of David. Maschil
1 Blessed is the man whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom Jehovah does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit
there is no guile.
3 When I kept silent, my bones wore out through my roaring all day long.
4 For by day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; my sap was turned into the
drought of summer. Selah.
5 I declared my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my
transgression to Jehovah, and You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6 For this let everyone who is godly pray unto You, in a time when You may be found;
surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come near him.
7 You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from distress; You shall enclose me
with shouts of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you
with My eye.
9 Do not be like the horse, or like the mule, which have no understanding, whose mouth
must be held in with bit and bridle, so that they do not come near you.
10 The wicked has many sorrows, but mercy envelops him who trusts in Jehovah.
11 Be glad in Jehovah and rejoice, you righteous; and shout for joy, all you upright in
