King David sinned with Bathsheba—and, to make matters worse, he hid his wrongdoing. His wounded conscience, though, was toppling under the weight of his misdeeds. Psalm 32 depicts the transformation within David as he moved from silence to acknowledgment and confession.

Instead, He becomes our hiding place.
