“Yahweh rewarded me,
According to my righteousness.
According to the cleanness of my hands,
He recompensed me.
I have kept the ways of Yahweh.
I have not wickedly departed from my God.
All his ordinances were before me.
His statutes I did not put away from me.
I was blameless before him.
I kept myself from guilt.
Therefore Yahweh has recompensed me,
According to my righteousness,
According to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.”
Once again, like 2 Samuel, chapter 22, Yahweh rewarded David for his righteousness. His hands were clean because he kept the ways of Yahweh. He never departed from God. He held all his statutes and ordinances before him. He was blameless and guiltless. Therefore Yahweh had compensated him because of his cleanliness. Yahweh had been good to him because David had followed him. David clearly was self righteous and felt that he deserved the rewards that he received from Yahweh.
