Psalm 32: 1, 2   Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit.

The setting for this Psalm of David is post-transgression with the sordid circumstances of the sin with Bathsheba; which some scholars believe lasted for up to one year.  The weight of that moment of pleasure haunted the king, prompting this question and prophecy about what is available to us this side of Calvary; specifically having sin not only forgiven, but covered and cleansed.

It is only when thoroughly forgiven and covered that the iniquitous transgression would not be imputed; rather righteousness would be imputed.

These verses prophetically describe what is available to every individual who receives the redemptive act of God provided through Christ’s sacrifice.  Because of His blood, the spirit of man is purged of deception, being completely open and transparent before God.

We truly are blessed!
