This verse is part of a song David sang when God saved him from Saul and his enemies. God might have saved David from his enemies but he has saved us from our sin. No one is perfect (except Jesus) so no one can earn eternal life in heaven.

That's like me going to Coles and paying for everyone else's groceries, except we're talking about living for eternity with God, not chocolate bars.
