To repent means to turn around and go a different direction. That is what we do after we sin. Here, King David tells us that as we even approach evil or wrongdoing, we can turn away from it. We can do good instead of doing something sinful and evil. It may sound easy to turn away but that often requires the help of God to move you (literally) out of the path of sin. Then seek peace in your life. Follow after it every day until it is yours, forever.
