David had made a huge mistake and realized it. So, he confessed his sin to God. But there was still payment due for his sin. David’s actions had been representative of the heart of the nation. His trust in God, like that of the people, had begun to diminish. As his reign neared its end and his power and prestige had grown, he had begun to get cocky, believing that his military might was the reason for all his success. As a nation, they were enjoying the fruits of David’s military exploits. It was a time of peace. They had defeated all their enemies. And, as a result, they had become complacent about their relationship with God. David had seen the error of his way, but he was still going to have to pay the piper. And in 2 Samuel 24:11-25, we’ll see God giving a David a choice of judgments. His sin was going to require blood sacrifice. He had offended a holy God and, even with his confession, restitution would have to be made.
