2 I will be careful to lead a blameless life — when will you come to me?
I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart. Psalm 101:2
David was described as a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:13-14), despite all the sin and dysfunction within his own home.
With a verse like this (and as part of a song), we get a glimpse into his thinking. David desperately wanted to please God.
Is it a prayer to God or is it David’s declaration of a consecrated life? Probably both.
This is a powerful verse and could easily be committed to memory.
