Of David. Masʹkil.*
My strength evaporated* like water in the dry summer heat. (Selah)
I said: “I will confess my transgressions to Jehovah.”+
And you pardoned the error of my sins.+ (Selah)
Then even the floodwaters will not reach him.
You will surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.+ (Selah)
I will give you advice with my eye upon you.+
Whose spiritedness must be controlled with a bridle or a halter
Before it will come near to you.”
10 Many are the pains of the wicked;
But the one trusting in Jehovah is surrounded by His loyal love.+
11 Rejoice in Jehovah and be joyful, you righteous ones;
Shout joyfully, all you who are upright in heart.
