1 David. Maskil. Beatus, cui remissa est iniquitas, et obtectum est peccatum.
2 Beatus vir, cui non imputavit Dominus delictum, nec est in spiritu eius dolus.
3 Quoniam tacui, inveteraverunt ossa mea, dum rugirem tota die.
4 Quoniam die ac nocte gravata est super me manus tua, immutatus est vigor meus in ardoribus aestatis.
5 Peccatum meum cognitum tibi feci et delictum meum non abscondi. Dixi: "Confitebor adversum me iniquitatem meam Domino". Et tu remisisti impietatem peccati mei.
6 Propter hoc orabit ad te omnis sanctus in tempore opportuno. Et in diluvio aquarum multarum ad eum non approximabunt.
7 Tu es refugium meum, a tribulatione conservabis me; exsultationibus salutis circumdabis me.
8 Intellectum tibi dabo et instruam te in via, qua gradieris; firmabo super te oculos meos.
9 Nolite fieri sicut equus et mulus, quibus non est intellectus; in camo et freno si accedis ad constringendum, non approximant ad te.
10 Multi dolores impii, sperantem autem in Domino misericordia circumdabit.
11 Laetamini in Domino et exsultate, iusti; et gloriamini, omnes recti corde.
King James Version
A Psalm of David, Maschil.
1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
