|758||BLESSED IS HE WHOSE TRANSGRESSIONS ARE FORGIVEN||Psalm 32, NIV|
Blessed is he whose transgressions|
are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man whose sin the
Lord does not count against him
and in whose spirit is no deceit.
When I kept silent, my bones wasted
away through my groaning all day long.
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
Then I acknowledged my sin to you
and did not cover up my iniquity.
I said, "I will confess my transgressions
to the Lord" and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
Therefore let everyone who is godly
pray to you while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters rise,
they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me
from trouble and surround me with
songs of deliverance.
I will instruct you and teach you
in the way you should go;
I will counsel you and watch over you.
