Let the lying lips be mute,
which speak against the righteous
insolently with pride and contempt.
Let those be hated who honor useless idols.
Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is covered,
whose guilt is not a burden,
in whose spirit there is no deceit.
Do not be like the horse, or like the mule, which have no understanding.
When I kept silence, my bones wasted away.
Day and night your hand was heavy on me.
Be glad in the Lord, shout, and rejoice.
