King David’s Terrible Sin

By A.W. Pink

Psalm 51:1-2…

Be gracious to 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.

Also, thousands, from age to age,
have by this solemn example of
David’s terrible sin, been rendered . . .

…more suspicious of themselves!
…more watchful!
…more afraid of temptation!
…more dependent on the Lord!
…and more fervent in prayer!

By means of David’s fall—they have,
themselves, been preserved from falling!
