Summary: Week 2 | Psalm 32 [31]<br> <br> <br> <br> #letuspray<br> <br>  <br> <br> <br> <br> The Joy of Forgiveness<br> A Psalm of David. A Maskil.<br> <br> 32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,<br>     whose sin is covered.<br> 2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity,<br>     and in whose spirit there is no deceit.<br> <br> <br> 3 When I declared not my sin, my body wasted away<br>     through my groaning all day long.<br> 4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me;<br>     my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah<br> <br> <br> 5 I acknowledged my sin to thee,<br>     and I did not hide my iniquity;<br> I said, “I will confess my trangressions to the Lord”;<br>     then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah<br> <br> <br> 6 Therefore let every one who is godly<br>     offer prayer to thee;<br> at a time of distress, in the rush of great waters,<br>     they shall not reach him.<br> 7 Thou art a hiding place for me,<br>     thou preservest me from trouble;<br>     thou dost encompass me with deliverance. Selah<br> <br> <br> 8 I will instruct you and teach you<br>     the way you should go;<br>     I will counsel you with my eye upon you.<br> 9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,<br>     which must be curbed with bit and bridle,<br>     else it will not keep with you.<br> <br> <br> 10 Many are the pangs of the wicked;<br>     but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the Lord.<br> 11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,<br>     and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!<br>  <br> *Housekeeping note: There was some clipping in the show that I could not fix.
