DAVID asks GOD for FORGIVENESS

 

Acts 3:19

King James Version

19 Repent ye therefore, 

and be converted, 

that your sins may be blotted out, 

when the times of refreshing shall come 

from the presence of the Lord.


Here's a wonderful psalm from David -- anointed king of Israel -- asking God for forgiveness, knowing he had sinned greatly against the Lord.

Psalm 51:1-17

King James Version

51 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.
