Psalm 32 Maschil

Psalm 32

A Psalm of David. A Contemplation – Maschil

 

BLESSED is he whose transgression is forgiven,

Whose sin is covered

2 Blessed is the man whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,

And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

 

3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old

Through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;

My vitality was turned into the drought of summer.     Selah.

5 I acknowledged my sin to You,

And my iniquity I have not hidden.

I said. “I will confess my trasngressions to the Lord”,

And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.      Selah.

 

6 For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You

In a time when You may be found:

Surely in a flood of great waters

They shall not come hear him.

7 You are my hiding place;

You shall presever me from trouble;

You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.     Selah.

 

8 I will instruct and teach you in the way you should go;

I will guide you with My eye,

9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule,

Which have no unerstanding,

Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,

Else they will not come near you.

 

10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;

But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.

11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice you righteous;

And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

  1. Thanks for the Scriptures you have been posting lately, M’Kayla. They are very refreshing and strengthening in the midst of all of the madness out there!

  2. Such a beautiful scripture which points out the place of repentance in the believer’s life. While we try to keep silent, avoid the truth, we are weighed down. I wonder how much of the time we feel tired, weighed down or discouraged, the real answer is to come to our Savior with honest repentance? After such a time we experience joy and praise and His mercy surrounding us.
