LITV(i) 1 A Psalm of David. A Contemplation. Blessed is he whose transgression is lifted, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man to whom Jehovah does not charge iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 When I kept silence, then my bones became old, through my howling all day. 4 For by day and by night Your hand was heavy on me; my sap was turned into the droughts of summer. Selah. 5 I confessed my sin to You, and I have not hidden my iniquity; I said, I will confess over my transgression to Jehovah; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 On account of this let every godly one pray to You; at a time of finding, surely, when great floods come, they will not reach him. 7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you, My eye shall be on you. 9 Be not like the horse, like the mule, with no understanding; with bit and bridle, his gear, to be held in, that they do not come near you. 10 Many sorrows are to the wicked; but he who trusts in Jehovah, mercy embraces him. 11 Be glad in Jehovah and rejoice, you righteous ones; and all the upright in heart, shout for joy.
