AN EXPOSITION OF THE FIFTY-FIRST PSALM
Here we have Luther's Exposition on Psalm 51. King David had been guilty of the most gross sins of adultery and murder. However, by means of the prophet Nathan's faithful dealings, in which he declared to the king, "Thou art the man," God wrought real conviction in David's soul. This is most evident in this Psalm, where David confesses before God, "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight." May those who read this volume also be made to feel their sin, and present to God the acceptable sacrifice of "...a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart." Hardback 199 p.g.
