[A Psalm] of David. A Maskil. How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!
How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
When I kept silent [about my sin], my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away [as] with the fever heat of summer. Selah.
I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
