    its interesting for sure. But grammar could be a lot better,along with spelling and punctuation. But it still effectively convey its point to the reader.

    this Psalm is a Psalm of some one who truly repent from his sin, He is a good example to all of us, when we realise that we have sinned let us confess our sin to God and repent from it, let us not make a habit of sinning, REMEMBER DAVID NEVER REPEATED ONE SIN AGAIN AND AGAIN! He confessed and Repented from his sin. This is a beautiful lesson to the Body of christ (the church ) shalom.
