Wesley's Notes for Psalms 19:12


19:12 Who - Thy law, O Lord, is holy and just and good. But I fall infinitely short of it. Cleanse - Both by justification, through the blood of thy son; and by sanctification thro' thy holy spirit. Though the first may seem to be principally intended, because he speaks of his past sins. Secret - From the guilt of such sins as were secret either, from others; such as none knows but God and my own conscience: or, from myself; such as I never observed, or did not discern the evil of. Pardon my unknown sins, of which I never repented particularly, as I should have done.

    Beware old sins which resurface in life. Presumptuous sins start small in the thoughts, but do great damage in the spirit. But for the grace and mercy of God, I could never forgive myself, to start anew. Thanks be to God.
