By Don Ruhl

The Holy Spirit included Psalm 18 as part of Second Samuel 22. In it, David spoke of his devotion to the Lord, including this,

For all His judgments were before me;
And as for His statutes, I did not depart from them.
I was also blameless before Him,
And I kept myself from my iniquity.
Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness,
According to my cleanness in His eyes.
(2 Samuel 22.23–25)

Did David ever stray? Yes, but that did not summarize his life. He devoted his life to keeping the Lord’s ways and David could see that the Lord blessed him for it. Therefore, He honored the Lord in this psalm.
