BLESSED is he whose transgression is forgiven and whose sin is blotted out.
Blessed is the man to whom the LORD has not reckoned his iniquity, and in whose heart there is no guile.
Because I suffered in silence all the day long, my bones waxed old during my deep slumber.
For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me;
intense pain developed in my heart great enough to kill me.
I have acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid from thee.
I said, I will confess my faults to the LORD;
and thou forgavest all of my sins.
For this let every one that is chosen pray unto thee at an appointed time;
surely even the floods of great waters shall not come near him.
Thou art my refuge;
thou shalt protect me from mine enemies;
thou wilt compass me about with glory and salvation.
I have made you to understand and have led you on the way which you shall take;
I will follow you with my eyes.
Be not as the horse or as the mule, which have no understanding, which must be subdued with bit and bridle from their youth;
no one goes near them.
The wicked has many sorrows;
but he that trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him.
Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;
and praise him, all you that are upright in heart.
