Psalm 32

32
Blessed Are the Forgiven
A Maskil#32:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term of David.
1 # Cited Rom. 4:7, 8; [Ps. 85:2] Blessed is the one whose #[Ex. 34:7; John 1:29]transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2Blessed is the man against whom the Lord #[2 Cor. 5:19] counts no iniquity,
and in whose spirit #John 1:47there is no deceit.
3For when I kept silent, my #See Ps. 31:10 bones wasted away
through my #See Ps. 22:1groaning all day long.
4For day and night your #1 Sam. 5:6, 11; [Ps. 38:2]hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up#32:4 Hebrew my vitality was changed as by the heat of summer. Selah
5I #Ps. 51:3 acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I #Ps. 38:18; Job 33:27; Prov. 28:13; [Luke 15:18, 21; 1 John 1:9]will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6Therefore let everyone who is #Ps. 30:4 godly
offer prayer to you at a time when you #See Ps. 69:13 may be found;
surely in the rush of #[Ps. 18:4, 16; 42:7; 69:1; 144:7]; See Job 22:11great waters,
they shall not reach him.
7You are a #Ps. 91:1; 119:114; [Ps. 27:5; 31:20] hiding place for me;
you preserve me from #Ps. 9:9 trouble;
you surround me with #[Ps. 18, title]; See Ex. 15:1-18; Judg. 5:1-31shouts of deliverance. Selah
8I will #Ps. 25:8, 12 instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will #Ps. 73:24counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 # Prov. 26:3; [Job 35:11] Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,
which must be curbed with #James 3:3bit and bridle,
or it will not stay near you.
10 # [Prov. 13:21; Rom. 2:9] Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
but steadfast love surrounds the one who #Ps. 34:8; 84:12; Prov. 16:20; Jer. 17:7trusts in the Lord.
11 # Ps. 64:10; 68:3; 97:12; [Ps. 33:1] Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
and #Deut. 32:43 shout for joy, all you #See Ps. 7:10upright in heart!
