Psalm 32

 1 Happy is the person
       whose sins are forgiven,
       whose wrongs are pardoned.
 2 Happy is the person
       whom the Lord does not consider guilty
       and in whom there is nothing false.

 3 When I kept things to myself,
       I felt weak deep inside me.
       I moaned all day long. 
 4 Day and night you punished me.
       My strength was gone as in the summer heat.   

 5 Then I confessed my sins to you
       and didn't hide my guilt.
    I said, "I will confess my sins to the Lord,"
       and you forgave my guilt.   

 6 For this reason, all who obey you
       should pray to you while they still can.
    When troubles rise like a flood,
       they will not reach them. 
 7 You are my hiding place.
       You protect me from my troubles
       and fill me with songs of salvation.   

 8 The Lord says, "I will make you wise and show you where to go.
       I will guide you and watch over you.
 9 So don't be like a horse or donkey,
       that doesn't understand.
    They must be led with bits and reins,
       or they will not come near you."

 10 Wicked people have many troubles,
       but the Lord's love surrounds those who trust him. 
 11 Good people, rejoice and be happy in the Lord.
       Sing all you whose hearts are right.  (Psalm 32, New Century Version) Pin It Now!
