The Joy of ForgivenessPsalm 32
1 A Psalm of David to give instruction. Blessed is he whose wickedness is forgiven, and whose sin is covered.2 Blessed is the man, unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 When I held my tongue, my bones consumed, or when I roared all the day, 4 (For thine hand is heavy upon me, day and night; and my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah) 5 Then I acknowledged my sin unto thee, neither hid I mine iniquity; for I thought, I will confess against myself my wickedness unto the Lord, and thou forgavest the punishment of my sin. Selah. 6 Therefore shall every one, that is godly, make his prayer unto thee in a time, when thou mayest be found; surely in the flood of great waters they shall not come near him. 7 Thou art my secret place; thou preservest me from trouble; thou compassest me about with joyful deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee, and teach thee in the way that thou shalt go, and I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not like an horse, or like a mule, which understand not; whose mouths thou doest bind with bit and bridle, lest they come near thee. 10 Many sorrows shall come to the wicked, but he, that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him. 11 Be glad ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord, and be joyful all ye, that are upright in heart.

And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
