Psalm 32 Blessing of Forgiveness

Today I don’t really have anything to write, and so decided to share another Psalm. I love the Psalms and I believe they are one of the best sources of prayer we have available to us. This is one of my favorite Psalms because it reminds me of how blessed I am that my sins are forgiven through Jesus.

Psalm 32

Of David. A maskil.

 1 Blessed is he
       whose transgressions are forgiven,
       whose sins are covered.

 2 Blessed is the man
       whose sin the LORD does not count against him
       and in whose spirit is no deceit.

 3 When I kept silent,
       my bones wasted away
       through my groaning all day long.

 4 For day and night
       your hand was heavy upon me;
       my strength was sapped
       as in the heat of summer.
       Selah

 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you
       and did not cover up my iniquity.
       I said, “I will confess
       my transgressions to the LORD “—
       and you forgave
       the guilt of my sin.
       Selah

 6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you
       while you may be found;
       surely when the mighty waters rise,
       they will not reach him.

 7 You are my hiding place;
       you will protect me from trouble
       and surround me with songs of deliverance.
       Selah

 8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
       I will counsel you and watch over you.

 9 Do not be like the horse or the mule,
       which have no understanding
       but must be controlled by bit and bridle
       or they will not come to you.

 10 Many are the woes of the wicked,
       but the LORD’s unfailing love
       surrounds the man who trusts in him.

 11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous;
       sing, all you who are upright in heart!

  1. I love the Psalms and that is one my favorite passages from Isaiah. It makes me think of 2 Timothy 4:2. 🙂

  2. Thank you so much Linda. I love the Psalms, and if J of Jerusalem can’t e-mail anything some weeks, this is what I want to do for Sunday, post a psalm. They all always minister to me.
    Also, sometimes when I get to feeling that I’m not doing this blog thing right or the posts are just not coming out that well, He reminds me that it is His word that is going to make a difference anyway. Not mine. phew. Don’t you just love Jesus? I know you do! ha!
    Take care my friend! deb

    • Deb, Isaiah 55:11 says: “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” We can never go wrong when we post His Word! 🙂 And yes, I do love Jesus!! Peace, Linda
