The passage calls for us to obedience and spiritual purity because God is Holy (pure). In our former lives we were controlled in ignorance by the passions of the flesh (sinful desire). However, because of the grace of Christ we should obey God.

However, it was placed in the Psalter during Post-Exilic time. Given that point and it's Davidic promise it is looking ultimately for the Messiah. This is especially true since there was no Davidic King during the Post-Exilic
