Blessedness of Forgiveness and of Trust in God.

[A Psalm] of David. A Maskil.

  1 aHow blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
  Whose sin is covered!
  2 How blessed is the man to whom the LORD adoes not impute iniquity,
  And in whose spirit there is bno deceit!

[2] a2Co 5:19 bJn 1:47

  3 ¶ When aI kept silent [about my sin], bmy Ibody wasted away
  Through my IIcgroaning all day long.
  4 For day and night aYour hand was heavy upon me;
  My Ibvitality was drained away [as] with the fever heat of summer.
      IISelah.
  5 I aacknowledged my sin to You,
  And my iniquity I bdid not hide;
  I said, “cI will confess my transgressions to the LORD”;
  And You dforgave the Iguilt of my sin.
      Selah.
  6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You Iain a time when You may be found;
  Surely bin a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
  7 You are amy hiding place; You bpreserve me from trouble;
  You surround me with Icsongs of deliverance.
      Selah.

Blessedness consisteth in remission of sins.

1 ¶ [[[A Psalm] of David, Maschil.]] Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered. 2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.

Confession of sins giveth ease to the conscience.

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. Selah. 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. Selah. 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. Selah.

God's promises bring joy.

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.
