1Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
2Blessed is the man to whom יהוה imputes no crookedness, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3When I kept silent, my bones became old Through my groaning all the day.
4For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My sap was turned into the droughts of summer. Selah.
5I acknowledged my sin to You, And my crookedness I did not hide. I have said, “I confess my transgressions to יהוה,” And You forgave the crookedness of my sin. Selah.
6Therefore, let every kind one pray to You While You might be found; Even in a flood of great waters They would not reach him.
7You are my hiding place; You preserve me from distress; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8“Let Me instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; Let Me counsel, My eye be on you.
9Do not be like the horse, like the mule, With no understanding, with bit and bridle, Else they do not come near you.”
10Many are the sorrows of the wrong; But as for the one trusting in יהוה, Kindness surrounds him.
11Be glad in יהוה and exult, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
