If this knowledge too high and unattainable for David, then I guess he is resigning to the fact that there is a huge Creator-creature distinction. He cannot push beyond mystery and the awe that comes with it at this point. This is a great lesson for me. "The poet just wants to get his head into the heavens. The logician tries to get the heavens into his head, and it's his head that splits."- Chesterton The knowledge that there is such a being who is so closely acquainted with me(transcendent and immanent) because there is, in and of itself, frightening. Only the gospel of grace makes it good news. Even David, a man after God's own heart, should have been more frightened than I am, seeing as how I have been covered by the blood of His Son.
