God of salvation (Ps 51:13-51:14)

“Then I will teach transgressors your ways.

Sinners will return to you.

Deliver me from bloodshed!

O God!

O God of my salvation!

My tongue will sing aloud of your deliverance.”

If David were to be forgiven, he would teach God’s way to other transgressors in hope that they would return to God. He did not want to shed his blood with an early death. He wanted to be saved so that his tongue and voice could sing to God about his deliverance.

The ways of Yahweh (Ps 25:4-25:5)

Dalet  

“Make me to know your ways!

Yahweh!

Teach me your paths!

He      

Lead me in your truth!

Teach me!

You are the God of my salvation.

Vav     

For you I wait all day long.”

David wanted Yahweh to teach him the true paths of the way of Yahweh. He wanted to be taught. Yahweh was his God of salvation. He waited all day long for him.
