How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.For I know my transgressions, And my sin is ever before me.Against You, You only, I have sinned And done what is evil in Your sight, So that You are justified when You speak And blameless when You judge.Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.Make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which You have broken rejoice.SEE ALSO: The Myth of Happily Ever After God’s word reminds us of the importance of connecting with people who are in line with our spiritual life (2 Corinthians , 1 Corinthians ).
