Psalm 32


Sermon Bible Passage

Psalm 32

Of David. A maskil.

Blessed is the one     whose transgressions are forgiven,     whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one     whose sin the Lord does not count against them     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 on 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 all the faithful pray to you     while you may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters     will not reach them. 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 with my loving eye on you. Do not be like the horse or the mule,     which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle     or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked,     but the Lord’s unfailing love     surrounds the one who trusts in him.

Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;     sing, all you who are upright in heart!
