The Blessedness of Forgiveness
A Psalm of David, Maschil.

1  Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2  Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, Rom. 4.7, 8
and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3  When I kept silence, my bones waxed old
through my roaring all the day long.
4  For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me:
my moisture is turned into the drought of summer.
5  I acknowledged my sin unto thee,
and mine iniquity have I not hid.
I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD;
and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. 2 Sam. 12.13
6  For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee
in a time when thou mayest be found:
surely in the floods of great waters
they shall not come nigh unto him.
7  Thou art my hiding place;
thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.
8  I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go:
I will guide thee with mine eye.
9  Be ye 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 unto thee.
10  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked:
but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
11  Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous:
and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
