Number 51 and King David

Psalm 51 is one of the most heart-wrenching and contrite songs in all Scripture. It's profound meaning is derived from its author, King David, who wrote it shortly after he was confronted by the prophet Nathan regarding his adultery with Bathsheba. His illicit affair led him to arrange the murder of her husband Uriah in order to cover up his sin and the fact that he got Bathsheba pregnant.

David's deep repentance and earnest prayer for forgiveness for his gross sins is exemplified in the following verses.

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin . . .

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

Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, O God, O God of my salvation . . . (Psalm 51:1 - 2, 7, 14).

Although forgiven, David's sin brought the consequences of internal strife within his household for the rest of his life (2Samuel 12:10 - 11).
