What in the world has happened to David and why is he singing about it? In chapter 38, his wounds fester and stink because of his sins. It makes you wonder what kind of sins cause this issue. He is bent over in pain and has a raging fever. When I think of the one sin that David is most known for and the request he had in his death bed, you wonder if this was not some form of VD. That may seem sacrilegious to you, but David had his issues and he is suffering in those sins.
