|Psalms 51:7-13 |
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.2
8 Make me hear joy and gladness; that the bones which you have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.3
11 Cast me not away from your presence and do not take your holy spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners shall be converted to you.
3 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. The Bible cannot cleanse you, sanctify you, and give you new Life; but Jesus, the Word of God, speaking words you hear, can and does for those who obey. Jesus said: The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving. John 6:63. Jesus said to his disciples: Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. John 15:3. Through obedience to the words heard within your heart, the Holy Spirit is given to a man. Acts 5:32, Pro 1:23,33. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh. Eze 11:19. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. Eze 36:27.
