This week Tehillim 32 is in my mind..
Daily I read this particular psalm…
Some verses are walking with me through the hours of the day like a good friend who wants to be with me…
7 “Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
There are conditions…
1 ¶ A Psalm of David, Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom YHWH imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto YHWH; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
Then an instruction how to behave:
9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in YHWH, mercy shall compass him about.
11 Be glad in YHWH, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
