After viduy during the Yamim Noraim selichot, we have several paragraphs quoting pesukim about teshuva. The second one starts with

משיח צדקך אמר לפניך

On Yom Kippur, this is changed to

ודוד עבדך אמר לפניך

and quotes the same pasuk.

Why do we refer to David in different terms?

  • In nussach sfard וכיסא דוד עבדך לתוכה תבין. על ידי דוד משיח צדקך ימלוך ה' אלוקייך ציון לגור ודור הללוך – kouty Oct 13 '16 at 18:01
  • @kouty I understand they both refer to David Hamelech. I'm asking why we call him one thing during the weekday selichot and something else on Yom Kippur. – Heshy Oct 13 '16 at 20:29
