Psalm 32 – Sin & Forgiveness

Take of your clothes and do not cover up your transgressions. All are sinners and putting on a facade will not help.

32:1

<Of David. Maschil.> Happy is he who has forgiveness for his wrongdoing, and whose sin is covered.

32:2

Happy is the man in whom the Lord sees no evil, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

32:3

When I kept my mouth shut, my bones were wasted, because of my crying all through the day.

32:4

For the weight of your hand was on me day and night; my body became dry like the earth in summer. (Selah.)

32:5

I made my wrongdoing clear to you, and did not keep back my sin. I said, I will put it all before the Lord; and you took away my wrongdoing and my sin. (Selah.)

32:6

For this cause let every saint make his prayer to you at a time when you are near: then the overflowing of the great waters will not overtake him.

32:7

You are my safe and secret place; you will keep me from trouble; you will put songs of salvation on the lips of those who are round me. (Selah.)

32:8

I will give you knowledge, teaching you the way to go; my eye will be your guide.

32:9

Do not be like the horse or the ass, without sense; …

32:10

The sinner will be full of trouble; but mercy will be round the man who has faith in the Lord.

32:11

Be glad in the Lord with joy, you upright men; give cries of joy, all you whose hearts are true.
