The Commonplace Book II - Psalm 51

Dear Reader,

Tonight, the words of Matthew Henry in his Commentary on the Whole Bible as they relate to Psalm 51:

"...It is a pity indeed that in our devout addresses to God we should have any thing else to do than to praise God, for that is the work of heaven; but we make other work for ourselves by our own sins and follies: we must come to the throne of grace in the posture of penitents, to confess our sins and sue for the grace of God."
