Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:7


51:7 Hyssop - As lepers, are by thy appointment purified by the use of hyssop and other things, so do thou cleanse me a leprous and polluted creature, by thy grace, and by that blood of Christ, which is signified by those ceremonial usages.

    To Jojo I understand how you feel i had a lot of things hapen to me and Lord knows I rebelled and done a lot of things Im not proud of. But all glory and praises belongs to GOD for saving a sinner like myself. I am very very thankful and greatful for GOD'S unconditional love He has shown me and I know HIS mercies are new for me everyday also His grace. I get weak at times but GOD IS GOOD!

    To ware Daniel God loves you , You humbled yourself before Him, He will answer, Your humble cry made me ashamed of myself for not remembering to be humble before the Lord , sometimes I get a little self righteous and a know it all attitude. Have you read this Luke 18:10 -14
