God told Samuel to anoint one of Jesse's sons as the next king of Israel. Anointing another king while one is still ruling is rather dangerous. So God told Samuel how to do that without making it public. That story included this memorable quote: “The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
This psalm tells the aspirations of a great king.
Pay attention! Paul is telling us how the process of transformation takes place whereby we are released from the ‘power of sin’ and ‘death’ to live a new life!
