Context
Blessed is He who is Forgiven

1Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputes not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. 4For day and night your hand was heavy on me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. 5I acknowledge my sin to you, and my iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions to the LORD; and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6For this shall every one that is godly pray to you in a time when you may be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come near to him. 7You are my hiding place; you shall preserve me from trouble; you shall compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with my eye. 9Be you not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near to you. 10Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusts in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 11Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, you righteous: and shout for joy, all you that are upright in heart.
