Bible Commentary for Psalms 51:12

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 51:12

  • Carleton on Psalms 51:12
    Dear fellow traveller, sometimes it is good to remember that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for all who believe. It does not matter at all what you believe in this world as true or false, because the world is not part of the Kingdom of Christ. Seek and you shall find, knock and His door will open. In the world it is getting more and more difficult to complete another day without fear gnawing at one's heart. Freedom from fear is faith and true repentance in Jesus Christ (pour out your unrighteousness before Jesus Christ and turn away from sin and become a new creature in Him). Do not be dismayed by those who may claim the same faith and yet walk without peace and love and most importantly forgiveness and reconciliation in our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. There will be no excuse before the Lord not to have personally come to Him and have let Him (Jesus) wash away your sins by His finished work at Calvary. His blood and water spilt there that fell back to the dust of the earth gave us a second chance to inherit an eternal life in peace and praise, if only we would believe unto Salvation. We cannot do this work ourselves and we must recognize that our very selves, our very hearts and minds are polluted and need the Lord's gift of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide His people, His Holy people, His eternal Tribe to the Last day. In the Last day, he will come for the believer, he will lift the believer up and away from the earth they live in and on. He will change the believer to an eternal state with a Holy eternal Body. Likewise on this same last day the earth and firmament will also be change to a state of eternal darkness and despair. The sinners left will cry out for judgement and try to confess their sin but there will only be despair. They, the devil, Satan and the un-holy fallen angels will along with the burning earth and firmament will enter into the eternal fallen state in eternal darkness in the lake of fire.

    This day will come like a thief in the night.

    Read a lot of verses starting at Gen 1 26 , Gen 3 v 22 , John 5v7 was the closest but certainly not specific enough to take seriously.

    John 10.30 , Malachi 3 v 16, 17 , acts , let's face reality there is not a single verse in All scriptures that even Mention the trinity , in context for a God head namely The father , Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit!

    God never changes , do you understand how that could be ?

    Sorry but I don't believe in Christian evolution.

  • Mari B on Psalms 51:12
    Jesus said you must be born of water & the Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. This is part of the gospel.

    PLease read 2nd Thessalonians 1:7-9.

    We must know our God & obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ or be punished w everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord & from the glory of his power.

  • Onyekachukwu Ogechi Levinus Alaka on Psalms 51:12
    Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation. Salvation he had known, and had known it as the Lord's own; he had also felt the joy which arises from being saved in the Lord, but he had lost it for a while, and therefore he longed for its restoration. None but God can give back this joy; he can do it; we may ask it; he will do it for his own glory and our benefit. This joy comes not first, but follows pardon and purity: in such order it is safe, in any other it is vain presumption or idiotic delirium. And uphold me with thy free Spirit. Conscious of weakness, mindful of having so lately fallen, he seeks to be kept on his feet by power superior to his own. That royal Spirit, whose holiness is true dignity, is able to make us walk as kings and priests, in all the uprightness of holiness; and he will do so if we seek his gracious upholding. Such influences will not enslave but emancipate us; for holiness is liberty, and the Holy Spirit is a free Spirit. In the roughest and most treacherous ways we are safe with such a Keeper; in the best paths we stumble if left to ourselves. The praying for joy and upholding go well together; it is all over with joy if the foot is not kept; and, on the other hand, joy is a very upholding thing, and greatly aids holiness; meanwhile, the free, noble, royal Spirit is at the bottom of both.
  • Ikechi on Psalms 51:12
    Many believers who are saved, do not find dwelling in them the Joy of Lord. Have you lost the Joy of your Salvation? God can restore you back to that experience. It is the daily work with God, possessing the Joy of the Lord that gives strength to the believer and attracts God 's help to dispel challenging situations around us.
  • MockingBird on Psalms 51:12
    I praise God that I can ask the Lord to restore the Joy of His salvation to me : When I am weak then I am strong for the Joy of the Lord is my strength. His Spirit gives me freedom from all fear sin and unbelief When I turn to Him. Praise God for His wonderful gift of Faith and salvation. Happiness is of the flesh : Joy is a spiritual force given to me of God : of the heart.
  • AMEN JAY on Psalms 51:12
    people of GOD look not from east to north for your help cometh only from one source LORD JESUS that will also restore HIS HEVEANLY JOY UPON US AMEN
  • Olivia on Psalms 51:12
    I love this! As a teenager you hear the term "free spirit " all the time, but it is usually used with a rebellious connotation. Here, we can truely feel the support of a free spirit, and it is in a way that it pleases God and we still have a great relationship with him.
