¶ 1 A Psalme of David to give instruction. Blessed is he whose wickednes is forgiuen, and whose sinne is couered.
2 Blessed is the man, vnto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquitie, and in whose spirite there is no guile.
4 (For thine hand is heauie vpon me, day and night: and my moysture is turned into ye drought of summer. Selah)
5 Then I acknowledged my sinne vnto thee, neither hid I mine iniquitie: for I thought, I will confesse against my selfe my wickednesse vnto the Lord, and thou forgauest the punishment of my sinne. Selah.
6 Therefore shall euery one, that is godly, make his prayer vnto thee in a time, when thou mayest be founde: surely in the flood of great waters they shall not come neere him.
7 Thou art my secret place: thou preseruest me from trouble: thou compassest me about with ioyfull deliuerance. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee, and teache thee in the way that thou shalt goe, and I will guide thee with mine eye.
9 Be ye not like an horse, or like a mule, which vnderstand not: whose mouthes thou doest binde with bit and bridle, least they come neere thee.
10 Many sorowes shall come to the wicked: but he, that trusteth in the Lord, mercie shall compasse him.
