David portrays how to recover from an evil conscience.
Friday, August 24, 2001
2SA 12:9 “Why have you despised” Qal perfect – bazah to think lightly, or to not take seriously, the word of the Lord.
Doing Qal infinitive asah to manufacture evil, to accomplish evil, to commit evil, to be occupied with evil.
PSA 36:4 “He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.”
You can become so familiar with the plan of God, the work of God, the man of God, the people of God, not even willfully but unintentionally.
LEV 5:15 “If a person acts unfaithfully and sins unintentionally against the Lord’s holy things, then he shall bring his guilt offering to the Lord:”
Arrogance takes the word of God lightly and ends up in evil.
The combination of personal sins with a conscience that has been defiled and seared produces evil.
Saul was the king of Israel, He had one wife, He was very moral, and he died the sin unto death. 1CH 10:13, because he rejected the doctrine from God.
David sinned and failed and continued searching for God, and ended up with fantastic blessing.
1SA 28:19 “Therefore tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. Indeed the Lord will give over the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines!”
2SA 1:23 “Saul and Jonathan, beloved and pleasant in their life, And in their death they were not parted; They were swifter than eagles, They were stronger than lions.”
MAT 6:13 “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
Once with the “Uriah incident” and once, 1Ch 21, when David rejected and questioned the promises of God.
Be gracious = to give him his discipline in installments, not only so he can bear his punishments but so that cursing can be turned to blessing.
David knows his relationship with God is based upon the imputed righteousness which God gives every believer at salvation, not upon experiential righteousness.
“blot out” Qal imperative – machah to wipe out, to wipe away; in the Qal imperative is a command.
He knows the doctrine of Righteousness and how the Justice of God judged those sins.
ISA 43:25 “I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”
wash piel imperative kabac a command by David for God to intensively cleanse and wash him from his iniquity.
HEB 4:16 “Let us therefore boldly approach the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need.”
Thoroughly hiphil imperative rabah “be caused to wash me thoroughly.”
ACT 13:22 “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.”
