1 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way... I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. We know David, the likely writer of this Psalm, was perfect: For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart away after other gods, and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 1 Kings 11:4. We know that David fell from perfection to adultery and murder. Then David was severely punished by the Lord, but to a purpose: to bring him back to perfection, to which he was restored. Before Christ, a man could only reach a state of perfection from which he could still fall to temptation and lose closeness with God. But after Christ, he made perfection of a man to be permanent and everlasting: For by one offering he has forever totally cleansed and perfected those who are made holy. Heb 10:14.
