The Joy of Forgiveness
Of David. A Maskil.
1How joyful is the one
whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered!32:1 Ps 85:2
2How joyful is a person whom
the Lord does not charge with iniquity32:1–2 Rm 4:7–8
and in whose spirit is no deceit!32:2 Jn 1:47
3When I kept silent, my bones became brittle
my strength was drained32:4 Hb obscure
and did not conceal my iniquity.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
When great floodwaters come,
you protect me from trouble.32:7 Ps 121:7
You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.Selah
9Do not be like a horse or mule,
that must be controlled with bit and bridle
but the one who trusts in the Lord
will have faithful love surrounding him.32:10 Ps 5:12
11Be glad in the Lord and rejoice,
you righteous ones;
shout for joy,
