Distress and sin (Ps 25:15-25:18)

Ain     

“My eyes are ever toward Yahweh.

He will pluck my feet out of the net.

Phe     

Turn to me!

Be gracious to me!

I am lonely and afflicted.

Cade   

Relieve the troubles of my heart!

Bring me out of my distress!

Qoph  

Consider my affliction!

Consider my trouble!

Forgive all my sins!”

The psalmist or David puts this on a very personal note. His eyes are on Yahweh because he knew that Yahweh would get his feet out of any net. He wanted Yahweh to turn to him and be gracious. He was lonely and afflicted. He wanted the troubles of his heart brought to an end. He wanted to get out of his distress and afflictions. The only way was for Yahweh to forgive him his sins.
