Transgression speaks to the wicked

deep in his heart;

there is no fear of God

before his eyes.

For he flatters himself in his own eyes

that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.

Psalm 36:1-2

"Some think that David, in all this, particularly means Saul, who had cast off the fear of God and left off all goodness, who pretended kindness to him when he gave him his daughter to wife, but at the same time was devising mischief against him. But we are under no necessity of limiting ourselves so in the exposition of it; there are too many among us to whom the description agrees, which is to be greatly lamented."
~ Matthew Henry's Whole Bible Commentary

Even in the countless ways I deceive myself and believe I am actually better than I am, Jesus saves. The good news for sinners like me and like you is the incredible never giving up love of God that assures us if we are in Christ, our sins are forgiven.
