Not many think on the truth of this verse. Every breath we take is a gift of God. There are times every one of us have had a close call that could have cost us our lives. Most people say they we lucky, yet it was God 's mercy at work. Lamentations 3:22, It 's of the Lord 's mercy we are not consumed, because His Compassions fail not. Every sin against God deserves the death penalty, yet we read 2Peter 3 9B God is longsuffering, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. David knew God 's mercy extended even to the unjust in a temporal sense, however His mercy and blessing went specifically to those who were His own, and I believe this is why David desired to know perfectly God 's statutes.
