After his sin with Bathsheba, King David, burdened by the weight of his disobedience, came to his senses and turned back to God to confess. He recognized that his atonement and forgiveness could only come from God. Alistair Begg illustrates this atonement, first described in Leviticus and then fully realized in Jesus. As David responded to forgiveness with praises to God, we too will be moved to worship when we have come before Christ in true confession and repentance.
5I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6Therefore let everyone who is godly
offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;
surely in the rush of great waters,
they shall not reach him.
7You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah
