Wesley's Notes for Psalms 51:12


51:12 The joy - The comfortable sense of thy saving grace, promised and vouchsafed to me, both for my present and everlasting salvation. Free - Or, ingenuous, or liberal, or princely. Which he seems to oppose to his own base and illiberal and disingenuous and servile spirit, which he had discovered in his wicked practices: a spirit, which may free me from the bondage of sin, and enable me chearfully to run the way of God's precepts.


Discussion for Psalms 51

  • Leslie Brown
    When I read this psalms We all was in sin and shape in iniquity. We must each and every ask Jehovah God to clean our heart and repent of our sins. God love is unconditional and all He asks for us is to understand His word and follow Him. This must be a daily process. We are going to fall but we must get back. Repent of our sins and thank Jehovah for is love. He is a might God. Let praise Him.
