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.
