Psalm 32 KJV
1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth

my roaring all the day long.
4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me:

transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest

thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely

9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have

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
11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and
shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
