Main point summary
From the text
Psalms 19:12-13
Who can know all his errors? 36
d Who can discern his errors?
Acknowledging that we are not aware of ourselves. Only God is.
Please do not punish me for sins I am unaware of. 37
e Declare me innocent from f hidden faults.
Pastor John ties this to justification - being declared righteous.
Moreover, keep me from committing flagrant 38 sins;
g Keep back your servant also from h presumptuous sins;
Pastor John ties this to sanctification, that is to be made free from arrogant sinning. I like the word "flagrant" by NET bible in the first column to the left. The sense of boasting in sin.
do not allow such sins to control me. 39
let them not have i dominion over me!
continuing this sense of sanctification, that the sin would not rule over us. This reminds me of Genesis 4:7 where God tells Cain not to let sin rule over him.
Then I will be blameless, and innocent of blatant 40 rebellion.
Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
Pastor John sees how this prayer covers both justification and sanctification.
Reference: LAB link here . LAB Questions 1. How often do you pray about your sin? When you do, what do you tend to pray? I often pray post-sin, after committing sins I am aware of. I tend to pray along the lines of 1 John 1-2. 2. How does the Psalmist pray about his sin in Psalm 19:12–13 ? The Psalmist prays acknowledging his own lack of awareness, for sins he did not even know he committed, and against committing flagrant, arrogant sins which he needs to be kept away from as well as that these sins would not rule over him. 3. Are there any presumptuous sins that threaten to have dominion over you? Make it a point to pray earnestly against these sins this week. I don't think I know all of them, but I would say anxiety arising from unbelief is one of the biggies. I love the example of this passage, especially for God to keep me from this sin and from having this sin rule over me (as it has for too much of my life! Urgh!). 2a. Can you think of other examples in Scripture where people prayed about their sin? The answer to this is just too big. So I have narrowed it down to some other examples prayed by David over sin on Psalm 51 only. Psalm 51:1,9 blot out transgression (after a sin has been committed) Psalm 51:2,7 wash and cleansing from the sin committed Psalm 51:4 acknowledging that sin and evil is ultimately against God Psalm 51:5 sin is present from conception of life Psalm 51:8 healing from sin Psalm 51:10,12 request for new, clean, and right heart and spirit, that also brings joy Psalm 51:9,11 request for reconciliation with God (sin destroys relationships, esp with God) Psalm 51:14 request to be delivered from bloodguiltiness Psalm 51:2,27 hoping in the God of mercy, steadfast love who does not despise the broken and contrite heart that knows its sinful nature.
