Psalm 32 *Thou Art My Hiding Place*

Chapter 32 *Thou Art My Hiding Place*

א לְדָוִד, מַשְׂכִּיל: אַשְׁרֵי נְשׂוּי-פֶּשַׁע; כְּסוּי חֲטָאָה. 1

[A Psalm] of David. Maschil.

Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is pardoned.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

ב אַשְׁרֵי אָדָם–לֹא יַחְשֹׁב יְהוָה לוֹ עָו‍ֹן; וְאֵין בְּרוּחוֹ רְמִיָּה. 2

Happy is the man unto whom jehovah counteth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

ג כִּי-הֶחֱרַשְׁתִּי, בָּלוּ עֲצָמָי– בְּשַׁאֲגָתִי, כָּל-הַיּוֹם. 3

When I kept silence, my bones wore away through my groaning all the day long.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

ד כִּי, יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה– תִּכְבַּד עָלַי, יָדֶךָ:

נֶהְפַּךְ לְשַׁדִּי– בְּחַרְבֹנֵי קַיִץ סֶלָה. 4

For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me; {N}

my sap was turned as in the droughts of summer.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*


ה חַטָּאתִי אוֹדִיעֲךָ, וַעֲו‍ֹנִי לֹא-כִסִּיתִי–

אָמַרְתִּי, אוֹדֶה עֲלֵי פְשָׁעַי לַיהוָה;

וְאַתָּה נָשָׂאתָ עֲו‍ֹן חַטָּאתִי סֶלָה. 5

I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid; {N}

I said:

‘I will make confession concerning my transgressions unto jehovah’– {N}

and Thou, Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*


ו עַל-זֹאת, יִתְפַּלֵּל כָּל-חָסִיד אֵלֶיךָ– לְעֵת מְצֹא:

רַק, לְשֵׁטֶף מַיִם רַבִּים– אֵלָיו, לֹא יַגִּיעוּ. 6

For this let every one that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found; {N}

surely, when the great waters overflow, they will not reach unto him.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

ז אַתָּה, סֵתֶר לִי– מִצַּר תִּצְּרֵנִי:

רָנֵּי פַלֵּט; תְּסוֹבְבֵנִי סֶלָה. 7

Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from the adversary; {N}

with songs of deliverance Thou wilt compass me about.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*


ח אַשְׂכִּילְךָ, וְאוֹרְךָ–בְּדֶרֶךְ-זוּ תֵלֵךְ; אִיעֲצָה עָלֶיךָ עֵינִי. 8

‘I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go; I will give counsel, Mine eye being upon thee.’

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

ט אַל-תִּהְיוּ, כְּסוּס כְּפֶרֶד– אֵין הָבִין:

בְּמֶתֶג-וָרֶסֶן עֶדְיוֹ לִבְלוֹם; בַּל, קְרֹב אֵלֶיךָ. 9

Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding; {N}

whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, that they come not near unto thee.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

י רַבִּים מַכְאוֹבִים, לָרָשָׁע: וְהַבּוֹטֵחַ בַּיהוָה–חֶסֶד, יְסוֹבְבֶנּוּ. 10

Many are the sorrows of the wicked; but he that trusteth in jehovah, mercy compasseth him about.

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*

יא שִׂמְחוּ בַיהוָה וְגִילוּ, צַדִּיקִים; וְהַרְנִינוּ, כָּל-יִשְׁרֵי-לֵב. 11

Be glad in jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous; and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. {P}

*Thou Art My Hiding Place*
