Psalm 32 (ASV)

[1] Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
[2] Blessed is the man unto whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no guile.
[3] When I kept silence, my bones wasted away Through my groaning all the day long.
[4] For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: My moisture was changed as with the drought of summer. [Selah
[5] I acknowledged my sin unto thee, And mine iniquity did I not hide: I said, I will confess my transgressions unto Jehovah; And thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. [Selah
[6] For this let every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: Surely when the great waters overflow they shall not reach unto him.
[7] Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from trouble; Thou wilt compass me about with songs of deliverance. [Selah
[8] I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will counsel thee with mine eye upon thee.
[9] Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding; Whose trappings must be bit and bridle to hold them in, Else they will not come near unto thee.
[10] Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he that trusteth in Jehovah, lovingkindness shall compass him about.
[11] Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous; And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

Psalm 32 (KJVS)

[1] «[A Psalm] of David H1732, Maschil H4905 (8688).» Blessed H835 [is he whose] transgression H6588 [is] forgiven H5375 (8803), [whose] sin H2401 [is] covered H3680 (8803).
[2] Blessed H835 [is] the man H120 unto whom the LORD H3068 imputeth H2803 (8799) not iniquity H5771, and in whose spirit H7307 [there is] no guile H7423.
[3] When I kept silence H2790 (8689), my bones H6106 waxed old H1086 (8804) through my roaring H7581 all the day H3117 long.
[4] For day H3119 and night H3915 thy hand H3027 was heavy H3513 (8799) upon me: my moisture H3955 is turned H2015 (8738) into the drought H2725 of summer H7019. Selah H5542.
[5] I acknowledged H3045 (8686) my sin H2403 unto thee, and mine iniquity H5771 have I not hid H3680 (8765). I said H559 (8804), I will confess H3034 (8686) my transgressions H6588 unto the LORD H3068; and thou forgavest H5375 (8804) the iniquity H5771 of my sin H2403. Selah H5542.
[6] For this shall every one that is godly H2623 pray H6419 (8691) unto thee in a time H6256 when thou mayest be found H4672 (8800): surely in the floods H7858 of great H7227 waters H4325 they shall not come nigh H5060 (8686) unto him.
[7] Thou [art] my hiding place H5643; thou shalt preserve H5341 (8799) me from trouble H6862; thou shalt compass H5437 (8779) me about with songs H7438 of deliverance H6405. Selah H5542.
[8] I will instruct H7919 (8686) thee and teach H3384 (8686) thee in the way H1870 which H2098 thou shalt go H3212 (8799): I will guide H3289 (8799) thee with mine eye H5869.
[9] Be ye not as the horse H5483, [or] as the mule H6505, [which] have no understanding H995 (8687): whose mouth H5716 must be held H1102 (8800) in with bit H4964 and bridle H7448, lest H1077 they come near H7126 (8800) unto thee.
[10] Many H7227 sorrows H4341 [shall be] to the wicked H7563: but he that trusteth H982 (8802) in the LORD H3068, mercy H2617 shall compass H5437 (8779) him about.
[11] Be glad H8055 (8798) in the LORD H3068, and rejoice H1523 (8798), ye righteous H6662: and shout H7442 (8685) for joy, all [ye that are] upright H3477 in heart H3820.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 32 (YLT)

[1] O the happiness of him whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
[2] O the happiness of a man, To whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
[3] When I have kept silence, become old have my bones, Through my roaring all the day.
[4] When by day and by night Thy hand is heavy upon me, My moisture hath been changed Into the droughts of summer. Selah.
[5] My sin I cause Thee to know, And mine iniquity I have not covered. I have said, ‘I confess concerning My transgressions to Jehovah,’ And Thou-Thou hast taken away, The iniquity of my sin. Selah.
[6] For this doth every saintly one pray to Thee, As the time to find. Surely at an overflowing of many waters, Unto him they come not.
[7] Thou art a hiding-place for me, From distress Thou dost keep me, With songs of deliverance dost compass me. Selah.
[8] I cause thee to act wisely, And direct thee in the way that thou goest, I cause mine eye to take counsel concerning thee.
[9] Be ye not as a horse-as a mule, Without understanding, With bridle and bit, its ornaments, to curb, Not to come near unto thee.
[10] Many are the pains of the wicked; As to him who is trusting in Jehovah, Kindness doth compass him.
[11] Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous, And sing, all ye upright of heart!
