PSALM XXXII. Chapter Overview

The happiness of them whose sins are forgiven, verse 1, 2.
The necessity of confessing our sins, and of prayer, verse 3-6.
God's promise to them that trust in him, verse 7-10.
An exhortation to rejoice in God, verse 11.
A psalm of David, Maschil.

Title of the psalm. Maschil-Or, an instructor. This psalm is fitly so called, because it was composed for the information of the church, in that most important doctrine, the way to true blessedness.

Verse 2
Imputeth - Whom God doth not charge with the guilt of his sins, but graciously pardons and accepts him in Christ. No guile - Who freely confesses all his sins, and turns from sin to God with all his heart.

Verse 3
Silence - From a full and open confession of my sins. Old - My spirit failed, and the strength of my body decayed. Roaring - Because of the continual horrors of my conscience, and sense of God's wrath.

Verse 4
Hand - Thy afflicting hand. My moisture - Was dried up.

Verse 5
The iniquity - The guilt of my sin.

Verse 6
For this - Upon the encouragement of my example. Found - In an acceptable and seasonable time, while God continues to offer grace and mercy. Waters - In the time of great calamities. Not come - So as to overwhelm him.

Verse 8
I will - This and the next verse seems to be the words of God, whom David brings in as returning this answer to his prayers. Mine eye - So Christ did St. Peter, when he turned and looked upon him.

Verse 9
Will not - Unless they be forced to it by a bit or bridle. And so all the ancient translators understand it.

Verse 10
Sorrows - This is an argument to enforce the foregoing admonition.
