1 The understanding of David himself. Blessed are they whose iniquities have been forgiven and whose sins have been covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord has not imputed sin, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 Because I was silent, my bones grew old, while still I cried out all day long.
4 For, day and night, your hand was heavy upon me. I have been converted in my anguish, while still the thorn is piercing.
5 I have acknowledged my offense to you, and I have not concealed my injustice. I said, "I will confess against myself, my injustice to the Lord," and you forgave the impiety of my sin.
6 For this, everyone who is holy will pray to you in due time. Yet truly, in a flood of many waters, they will not draw near to him.
7 You are my refuge from the tribulation that has surrounded me. You are my exultation: rescue me from those who are surrounding me.
20 Now, to the repentant, he has given the way of justice, and he has strengthened those lacking in patience, and he has fastened them to a destiny of truth.
21 Convert to the Lord, and relinquish your sins.
22 Make supplication before the face of the Lord, and diminish your offenses.
23 Return to the Lord, and turn away from your injustice, and have immense hatred for abomination.
24 And acknowledge the justices and judgments of God, and stand firm in the circumstances set before you and in prayer to the most high God.
