Psalm 51

1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

  1. Sin
    Its ugly and very degrading to my /our spirit that God gave us.
    Psalm 11/ Dont take me from thy sight oh God, and Dont take to Holy Spirit from me.

    I know that when I need to repent I have to find the closest altar I can find. Whether its at home or church . I love the Lord and of my wrong doings the Lord had forgiven me . I thank Jesus for not taking the Holy Ghost from me. Cause of things thati have done it thought it wasn’t OK but all I had to do ESD find the altar and repent which can be the altar that’s in my heart.
    I love people they are so valuable to have that God blesses us/me with. Thank you Jesus that there is peace and security with you and I’m always in a hurry to remove the ugly sin out of my life. Jesus is the answer for everything.

    Thank you Lord for not taking the Holy Ghost away from me.

  2. 1. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

    If we were to be forgiven based on our love, kindness or mercy, we would be lost forever; however, David wisely appealed to God’s lovingkindness and mercies and so should we, for His mercy endures forever.

    1 Chronicles 16:34-35 KJV
    34. O give thanks unto the Lord ; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
    35. And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

  3. iLove to eat the Word

    Psalms 51:14 KJV Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

    When we are covered in sin and shame, it is difficult to praise and worship the Lord. We must do as David did and confess our faults and turn back to the Lord as soon as possible. God is faithful to forgive.

  4. v1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

    Mercy rejoiceth against judgment !
    James 2:13

    It is not HIS will that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    Thank – you JESUS for your loving- kindness
    and tender mercies.

  5. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight. You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just. (Psalms 51:3, 4 NLT)
    I thank The Lord for his word that is alive! An individual that is filled with the Holy Ghost will feel conviction when sin is present in their life. You must recognize that you have sinned, and immediately turn from it! Many people think that God will not forgive them, if their sin, but there is only one sin that will not be forgiven:

    “So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven—except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven. (Matthew 12:31 NLT)

    We must stop playing with sin. I don’t understand how pride and rebellion are walls that are put up, This doesn’t show how strong you think you can be, it actually shows your maturity in Jesus. Just like there is a place called heaven, there is also a place called hell.
    Remember you have been blood bought a new creature in Christ!!!

    So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good? That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land!

    So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good? That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land! That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we’re going in our new grace-sovereign country. That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we’re going in our new grace-sovereign country.

    Could it be any clearer? Our old way of life was nailed to the cross with Christ, a decisive end to that sin-miserable life—no longer at sin’s every beck and call! What we believe is this: If we get included in Christ’s sin-conquering death, we also get included in his life-saving resurrection. We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That’s what Jesus did.

    That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don’t give it the time of day. Don’t even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life. Throw yourselves wholeheartedly and full-time—remember, you’ve been raised from the dead!—into God’s way of doing things. Sin can’t tell you how to live. After all, you’re not living under that old tyranny any longer. You’re living in the freedom of God. (Romans 6:1-14 MSG)

  6. A REPENTANT HEART

    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    We learn from the response of David when confronted by Nathan, his man of GOD, the prophet in his life. The response of David to GOD and his man, is an example for us in how to respond when confronted by our man of GOD. I believe the response of David here affirms that he was a man after God’s own heart.

    Pained by his own failure, not because he was caught, but because he realized his own frailty and the guiltiness of his own sin. May this be our prayer today and the prayer of millions around the world that may have fallen in sin.

    LORD JESUS we desperately need a HOLY GHOST revival in these last days.

  7. Why not Sacrifice?

    For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (Psalms 51:16, 17 KJV)

    Sometimes in our lives we give sacrifices to please The Lord and sometimes He doesn’t want them. Obedience is better than sacrifice. Too often the little foxes spoil the vine on obedience. Other things cloud our judgement or get in the way. Priorities get skewed.

    God wants us to seek after him. It is when we realize that the things we have done are not allowing us a closer relationship that our spirit is broken for him. God wants us to have a contrite heart.

    Contrite means
    feeling or expressing remorse or penitence; affected by guilt.

    Lord forgive me!

  8. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

    What greater prayer could be prayed than, (create in me a clean heart) then renew a right spirit.
    When we sin the only way to correct is to repent. Repentance is not just for sinners, we must repent daily. It would be wise for us to check our spirit and attitude everyday when we arise, before we start our day.
    We should ask God to help us see ourselves as he sees us with his eyes.
    O’God help us today to have salvation restored to us, where we can live for God with joy. Until we receive joy, we will not be able to teach transgressors thy ways nor can we bring sinners to God.
    I pray today God make me a soul winner, give me a greater burden for the lost.

  9. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    Do you remember the joy, energy, enthusiasm, and newness of the day you got saved for the very first time???? I compare it to a wedding day, there is so much excitement, that your heart can’t contain it. Newlyweds can’t stop kissing, can’t stop smiling at each other…then time passes, the excitement becomes routine, the newness is gone, people begin doing things out of obligation… some couple decide to renew their bows. To remember and relive that joyful moment, in the same way, we as Christians should die daily in the flesh and repent for our sins. This will restore that JOY, unspeakable JOY and full of HIS GLORY. Repentance, true repentance, will fill your heart with that same enthusiasm. Christians that do this will not burn out, will not become religious doing things out of obligation, but doing it for the JOY of it.
    Lord, Help us never forget YOUR JOY WHICH IS OUR STRENGTH.

  10. 0 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

    It is only when we are cleansed from the inside out that we can truly teach transgressors the ways of the Lord. People can see through people that are hypocritical, live one way and talk another. We must be genuine, pure, compassionate and caring. When the joy of our salvation is restored unto us, through repentance and refreshing in the Holy Ghost, it will be evident to all, because it will truly be a well of living water springing up with in our souls, flowing out and touching all those that it comes in contact with. When a river overflows its banks everything and everyone around it gets, wet. That’s how it should be with us, everything and everyone around us should see and feel the true joy of our salvation. It should be very evident, but it all starts with cleansing in His presence.

  11. The priorities of sacrifice

    16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

    17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

    18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

    19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

    If our heart isn’t right first, our sacrifice will not be accepted. See Cain and Able. We have to give unto God our hearts first. God will accept our sacrifices and bless us in abundance but only after our heart is right with him.

  12. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy s

  13. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. (Psalms 51:2, 3 NLT)

    *^Ain’t that the truth. Lord knows I had stains on me. Goes over and over inside my head. Like I can never get ride of.
    But greater is the power in me. Mercy, forgiveness, grace. Jesus Christ saves and wipes away the dirt. Thank you Jesus. Please forgive me.

  14. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
    13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

    Cleanse me Lord that You may use me for Your kingdom and Your purpose!

  15. When something gets dirty we don’t just throw it away or get a new one. We wash it out and clean it. I thank God that He didn’t throw me to the side when I got dirty. I’m so grateful that He took the time to wash me and make me clean.
    Thank you Jesus for your patience!

  16. 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    One of the fruits of the spirit is joy. When we are Filled with the spirit, joy will come.

  17. Psalms 51:7-8
    Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
    Oh, give me back my joy again;
    you have broken me—
    now let me rejoice.

    Repent and praise.

    Sometimes we need to be broken. The pieces of our life God can put together. He knows exactly what we need.

    Our attitude will help us.

  18. “Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts”. The Lord (Jesus) can work with willingness; however one must first work on ones stubbornness. All have sinned, which one must first acknowledge ones sins to God (Jesus), who willing forgives. What a mighty God we serve, thank God for his word! God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all, in Jesus name, Amen

  19. Until Christ returns, we must live in the stength of the new man, to overcome the sinful desires arising from the sin nature.

  20. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

    This is such a beautiful chapter on Gods mercy and forgiveness. In this chapter we see a excellent example of how a sincere prayer of repentance should be and what happens when we pray it. If anyone ever feels like they have sinned and are at the mercy of God this chapter is a great example of how to pray.

  21. Build The Walls

    18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

    19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

    The image that went through my mind was the walls of Jerusalem representing relationship with and faithfulness to God. I could imagine different elements: trusting God through a difficult trial adds another stone, resisting temptation spreads morter on top, seeking after Him adds plaister over it to seal and protect, etc. And all this through the goodness of God.

    Romans 2:1-4
    1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

    2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

    3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

    4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

    It is God’s goodness that leads us to repentance, to building the walls instead of tearing them down. None of us are perfect and we are all born as wall-destroyers, not wall-builders. It is through God’s goodness and the new birth experience that we can take on a new nature and build something through relationship restored with Him.

    Jeremiah 33:3-9
    3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

    4 For thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword;

    5 They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city.

    6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

    7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.

    8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.

    9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.

  22. Don’t look at sins and wash them, create in us a new clean heart……never remove us from your presence nor take away thy precious Holy Spirit from us. We need you Holy Spirit………..

    9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    Clean Heart……………….

  23. 1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

    2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

    3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
    This chapter truly express sincere repentance. I we would have fall short and needed to repent this chapter is definitely a great way to do it..SINCERELY.

  24. Repentance
    This chapter illustrate the mind of a humble, repentant spirit. This was David’s prayer after Nathan confronted him about his adultery and first degree murder. Humility is shown in this prayer. It would have been better had he prayed before he was called out by the profit, but nonetheless he repented. I wonder if his judgement would have been less had he repented before Nathan called him out. Would he have had the family problems with his sons?

  25. 16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

    17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

    Truely an example of a repentant attitude. It was after the word of God came through the man of God that David had the revelation of his sin. Like wise it is with most because we know that sin causes death. In they death you’re alive but separated from God. David was a man in power and authority and obviously being king, he had wealth. He shows us that true repentance is a matter of the heart. You can offer whatever offerings and sacrifice you want but it will never pay for your sin. A broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart… It’s a matter of the heart.
    I thank God for his loving kindness, for his mercy and grace.

  26. HAVE MERCY HAVE mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Ps. 51 : 9 Col. 2 : 14 2. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightiest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Gen. 20 :6 5. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Job. 14 : 4; John 3 : 6 Thank you JESUS for Loving Me. Thank you we can repent know matter what. I AM VICTORIOUS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHEST ME.
