David
“You acted foolishly and have not kept the
command the LORD your God gave you …
now your kingdom will not endure; the
LORD has sought out a man after his own
heart and appointed him leader of his
people, because you have not kept the
LORD’s command.”
1 Sam 13:13-14 (NIV)
David
Psalm 51 is a record of David’s confession
to God
“Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
and sinners will turn back to you.”
Psalm 51:13 (NIV)
Psalm 32 is a reflection of David’s
experience after his confession
David speaks to assembly
1How
blessed is he whose transgression is
forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
2 How blessed is the man to whom the
LORD does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
David speaks to God
3 When
I kept silent about my sin, my body
wasted away through my groaning all day
long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy
upon me; my vitality was drained away as
with the fever heat of summer.
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to
the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my
sin.
David speaks to God
6 Therefore, let
everyone who is godly pray
to You in a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters they will
not reach him.
7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me
from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance.
Priest speaks to David
8I
will instruct you and teach you in the
way which you should go; I will counsel you
with My eye upon you.
9 Do not be as the horse or as the mule
which have no understanding, whose
trappings include bit and bridle to hold
them in check, otherwise they will not come
near to you.
10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
But he who trusts in the LORD,
lovingkindness shall surround him.
David speaks to assembly
11 Be
glad in the LORD and rejoice, you
righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright
in heart.
Psalm 32 (NASB)
David speaks to assembly
1How
blessed is he whose transgression is
forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
2 How blessed is the man to whom the
LORD does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!

against the LORD.” And Nathan said to
David, “The LORD also has put away your
sin; you shall not die.”

David speaks to God
3 When
I kept silent about my sin, my body
wasted away through my groaning all day
long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy
upon me; my vitality was drained away as
with the fever heat of summer.
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to
the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my
sin.
