CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
19:12 Who - Thy law, O Lord, is holy and just and good. But I fall infinitely short of it. Cleanse - Both by justification, through the blood of thy son; and by sanctification thro' thy holy spirit.

Pardon my unknown sins, of which I never repented particularly, as I should have done.

Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.
You spread out our sins before you--our secret sins--and you see them all.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
