Psalm 32. Beati quorum.
- BLESSED is he whose unrighteousness is forgiven, *
and whose sin is covered.
- Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth no sin, *
and in whose spirit there is no guile.
- For whilst I held my tongue, *
my bones consumed away through my daily complaining.
- For thy hand was heavy upon me day and night, *
and my moisture was like the drought in summer.
- I acknowledged my sin unto thee; *
and mine unrighteousness have I not hid.
- I said, I will confess my sins unto the Lord; *
and so thou forgavest the wickedness of my sin.
- For this shall every one that is godly make his prayer unto thee, in a time when thou mayest be found; *
surely the great water-floods shall not come nigh him.
- Thou art a place to hide me in; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; *
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.
- I will inform thee, and teach thee in the way wherein thou shalt go; *
and I will guide thee with mine eye.
- Be ye not like to horse and mule, which have no understanding; *
whose mouths must be held with bit and bridle, else they will not obey thee.
- Great plagues remain for the ungodly; *
but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord, mercy embraceth him on every side.
- Be glad, O ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; *
and be joyful, all ye that are true of heart.
