Vindicate me, O Lord,
for I have led a blameless life;
I have trusted in the Lord
Vindicate Me (verse 1)
· The Hebrew word for “vindicate” means to “give me justice”.
· David was an upright and righteous man. He confessed this in verse one as well (“for I have led and blameless life; I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.”). He KNEW his heart!
· When we ask God to protect us, provide, and prosper us, this is a NEEDED part of it: to be found in HIS will!
