    The psalmist is requesting to stay as close to Jehovah God as possible. We want to do everything we can to stay close to God and plead with him that he stay close to us and give us his holy spirit.

    I THINK ITS SAYING THAT ONCE WE HAVE BEEN SAVE BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST, WE ALWAYS STAT STEFAST IN OUR CLOSENESS TO HIM, WE DON,T WANT TO WANDER AWAY FROM JESUS AND FIND WERE BACK INTO SINNING TO LOSE ONES SALVATION IS TO BE CONDEM FOR ALL ETERNITY

    (5-6) Two verses that stand out to me with respect to some recent posts/conversations. This Psalm has been very precious to me for so long, for very painful reasons. I can imagine how terrible David felt, though my sins weren't exactly like his: one wishes they could just make the past to have never happened; but it did! And still, the LORD is willing to forgive and cleanse and make new again!!!!!
