Transformation in the Psalms

“...the confession of culpability reveals a theological conviction that the remedy for sin is not just divine discipline but rather grace obtained through prayerful admission of sin. This forgiveness, however, is not the final remedy, because the psalmists also look for a righteousness that arises from the heart and that is enabled by Yahweh, who teaches as well as transforms the heart.”—A Severe Mercy, page 508
