Psalm 32. Beati quorum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Sixth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven, *
    and whose sin is put away!
  2. Happy are they to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, *
    and in whose spirit there is no guile!
  3. While I held my tongue, my bones withered away, *
    because of my groaning all day long.
  4. For your hand was heavy upon me day and night; *
    my moisture was dried up as in the heat of summer.
  5. Then I acknowledged my sin to you, *
    and did not conceal my guilt.
  6. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord." *
    Then you forgave me the guilt of my sin.
  7. Therefore all the faithful will make their prayers to you in time of trouble; *
    when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach them.
  8. You are my hiding-place; you preserve me from trouble; *
    you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
  9. "I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go; *
    I will guide you with my eye.
  10. Do not be like horse or mule, which have no understanding; *
    who must be fitted with bit and bridle, or else they will not stay near you."
  11. Great are the tribulations of the wicked; *
    but mercy embraces those who trust in the Lord.
  12. Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; *
    shout for joy, all who are true of heart.
