Of David. Giving instruction
1 Blessed are those to whom is remitted iniquity, And whose transgression is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom Jehovah doth not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is not guile.
3 When I kept silence, waste away did my bones, And when I wailed all the day.
4 For by day and night heavy upon me was thy hand; Turned into the drought of summer was my greenness. Selah.
5 My sin I have acknowledged to thee, And my iniquity I have not hid. I said, |I will confess against myself my wickedness to Jehovah;| And thou didst remit the guilt of my sin. Selah.
6 On this account, pray to thee shall every man, that is meek, In the time of finding thee: So that in a flood of many waters, To him they shall not come near.
7 Thou art a hiding-place to me; From trouble thou shalt preserve me; With songs of deliverance thou shalt encompass me. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee, And teach thee the way wherein thou shouldest walk: I will counsel thee with mine eye.
9 Be ye not like a horse, or like a mule, Which have not understanding: With bit and bridle his jaws thou shalt bind, Lest they kick against thee.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: But the man who hopeth in Jehovah goodness shall encompass.
11 Rejoice in Jehovah, and exult, ye righteous! Sing all ye who are upright in heart.
