  Study Tools

Psa. 51:1-19

1. DAVID'S CONDITION Notice the consequences of sin.

A. Sin Soils The Soul -Sin will make the soul feel dirty. v.2 "Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin"

Isa ch 64 v. 6 "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."

Note Our :-

(a) Pollution "But we are all as an unclean thing,"

(b) Poverty "and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;"

(c) Powerlesness "and we all do fade as a leaf;"

(d) Pointlessness "and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."

B. Sin Saturates The Mind - (Ill. David’s sin was always on his mind!)

v. 3 "For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me."

There was no :-

(a) Forgiving David's Sin

(b) Forgetting David's Sin

(c) Forgoing David's Sin

C. Sin Stings The Conscience - David was broken because he had hurt God! v. 4 " Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest."

Prodigal Luke Ch 15 v 21 " And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son."

D. Sin Saddens The Heart - (Ill. David has lost his joy and wants it back!) v. 12 " Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;"

E. Sin Sickens The Body - (Ill. David’s sin has begun to take a physical toll on him.) v. 8 "Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice."

F. Sin Sours The Spirit - (Ill. David had a wrong spirit ) v. 10 " Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me."

G. Sin Seals The Lips - v. 13-15 v.13 "Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee."

Sin will take away your shout, your song and your service. You can shout - there’s no presence of God. You can’t sing - there’s no joy. You can’t testify - there’s no reality in your life.

II. DAVID'S CONFESSION v.1 "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity , and cleanse me from my sin.3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me."

A Broken Spirit Confesses Sin - Because Of :-

God's Character - "Have mercy upon me, O God,

God's Covenant - "according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions"

God's Cleansing -"Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin"

A Broken Spirit Comprehends Sinfulness - Because it is -

1. transgressions, (evp), pesha, rebellion.

2. iniquity, (Nwe), avon, crooked dealing.

3. sin, (tajx), chattath, error and wandering. Adam Clarke.

We Made Our Mark - blot out my transgressions 1. transgressions-acts of rebellion, crossing over God's line.

We Mobilized Our Mistreatment - 2.Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity iniquity-inward crookedness.
