    It's not up to me or others to say what I think of Psalm 51, or any other part of God's Word; it's up to me and others to obey it. God's Word is to be totally accepted, period. One cannot pick and choose what they like about the Scriptures. The Scriptures are rationalized in so many churches because of false and apostate preachers and teachers.

    As sinners we must come before God daily and ask to be cleansed in the name of his son Jesus.

    This is when Nathan the prophet came in unto David and confronted him with the sin of having Uriah killed ,because David had taken his wife and was pregnant with his child : God always know our sin : be sure our sin will find us out : David acknowledged his sin and asked forgiveness and that God would create within him a clean heart and to renew a right spirit within him. So should I do when I acknowledge a sin within me . Every sin will reap a just recompence of reward , we, I am forgiven , but reaped a just recompence of reward. The sword was against David's house till his death .

    THIS LEVEL OF HUMILITY IS ALL AMAZING .....after the kind acknowledge his transgression, he doesn't seem to hold back his great mantle of kingship but holds unto God.... instead of him saying don't take your leadership position, riches, wealthy instead he says ''don't take your holy spirit away from me'' he still goes deep to believe its not the sacrificial gift that will deliver him but MERCY....

    Nathan the prophet came unto him ,David: after he king David had gone in to Bathsheba, 2 Samuel 11:1-2-3-4. V 13-27. Chapter 12: v 1-12 Nathan rebukes king David ; And he repentance and sorrow .psalm 51: v3-13-14-19. David prayed and God hard and answer his part. The safcrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God,thou wilt not despise.
