Psalms, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from The Psalms, Vol. 2 According to, literally, like thy mercy, i.e. in accordance with it, in proportion to it. Here again there is a tacit admission of the greatness of his guilt, as requiring infinite mercy to forgive it. Abundance, increase, multitude. See above, on Ps. v. 8 (7.) Compassions, tender mercies, a term expressive of the warmest and tenderest affections. See above, on Ps. xviii.2 (1.) Blot out, erase, from thy remembrance. The allusion is probably to a record or register of crimes, or to the cancelling of accounts, although the former seems to agree better with ancient and oriental usage. Compare Num. v. 23. Transgressions, or with closer adherence to the primary etymological import of the term, revolts, apostasies. See above, on Ps. xix.14 (13.)xxxii. 1. 4 (2.) Thoroughly wash me from my iniquity, and from my sin cleanse me. The first word in Hebrew is the infinitive or imperative of a verb meaning to increase or multiply, but often used adverbially in the sense of plentifully, abundantly. The verb in the first clause properly denotes the act of washing the garments, as distinguished from that of bathing the body. See Num. xix. 19. The image here presented therefore is the same as in Jude V. 23, sin being represented as a stain, and the grace of God as purifying water. 5 (3.) For my transgressions I know, and my sin (is) before me always. His consciousness of guilt is urged, not only as a reason why he should ask forgiveness, but as a reason why God should grant it. As no one is forgiven unless convinced of sin, so this conviction constitutes a kind of claim to pardon, not as being meritorious or intrinsically efficacious, but as an indication of Gods merciful intentions, since conviction and forgiveness are alike his gift. The same mutual connection of the two things is uniformly recognized in Scripture. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
