2 Samuel – Chapter 22

2 Samuel chapter 22

David was a skilled musician who played his harp for Saul, instituted the music programs in the temple, and wrote more of the book of Psalms than anyone else. This royal hymn of thanksgiving is almost identical to Psalm 18.
Verse 3 – David calls God “the horn of my salvation” referring to the strength and defensive protection animals have in their horns.
Verses 22-24 – David was not denying that he had ever sinned. Psalm 51 shows his anguish over his sin against Uriah and Bathsheba. However, David understood God’s faithfulness and was writing this hymn from God’s perspective. He knew that God had made him clean again—“whiter than snow,” (Psalm 51:7) with a “pure heart” (Psalm 51:10). Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are made clean and perfect. God replaced our sin with purity through Christ.
