Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Self-covered sin (v.4-5) = wasting bones
Christ-covered sin (v.1) = blessed
