Psalm 32 (ASV)
 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
 Blessed is the man unto whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no guile.
 When I kept silence, my bones wasted away Through my groaning all the day long.
 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: My moisture was changed as with the drought of summer. [Selah
 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
 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.
 Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from trouble; Thou wilt compass me about with songs of deliverance. [Selah
 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will counsel thee with mine eye upon thee.
 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.
 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he that trusteth in Jehovah, lovingkindness shall compass him about.
 Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous; And shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

 «[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).
 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.
 When I kept silence H2790 (8689), my bones H6106 waxed old H1086 (8804) through my roaring H7581 all the day H3117 long.

 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
