Psalm 32

The Joy of Forgiveness

Of David. A Maskil.
1 Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven,
   whose sin is covered.
2 Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,
   and in whose spirit there is no deceit.


3 While I kept silence, my body wasted away
   through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
   my strength was dried up* as by the heat of summer.
          Selah


5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you,
   and I did not hide my iniquity;
I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’,
   and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
          Selah


6 Therefore let all who are faithful
   offer prayer to you;
at a time of distress,* the rush of mighty waters
   shall not reach them.
7 You are a hiding-place for me;
   you preserve me from trouble;
   you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.
          Selah


8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go;
   I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
9 Do not be like a horse or a mule, without understanding,
   whose temper must be curbed with bit and bridle,
   else it will not stay near you.


10 Many are the torments of the wicked,
   but steadfast love surrounds those who trust in the Lord.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous,
   and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.

Psalm 36

Human Wickedness and Divine Goodness

To the leader. Of David, the servant of the Lord.
1 Transgression speaks to the wicked
   deep in their hearts;
there is no fear of God
   before their eyes.
2 For they flatter themselves in their own eyes
   that their iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
3 The words of their mouths are mischief and deceit;
   they have ceased to act wisely and do good.
4 They plot mischief while on their beds;
   they are set on a way that is not good;
   they do not reject evil.


5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
   your faithfulness to the clouds.
6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
   your judgements are like the great deep;
   you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.


7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
   All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house,
   and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
   in your light we see light.


10 O continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
   and your salvation to the upright of heart!
11 Do not let the foot of the arrogant tread on me,
   or the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There the evildoers lie prostrate;
   they are thrust down, unable to rise.
