Bible
Psalms 32:1-11
Luke 5:12-16

Psalms
32:1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
32:2 Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.
32:3 When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
32:4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Selah
32:5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”–and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah
32:6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him.
32:7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.
32:9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.
32:10 Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’S unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
32:11 Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

Luke
5:12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
5:13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
5:14 Then Jesus ordered him, “Don’t tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.”
5:15 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.
5:16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
