    a few connotations of "blot out"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    Finally, it commemorates the baptism of each Christian, when we formally accepted the death of Jesus Christ, when we asked Him to apply His priceless sacrifice to our sins, when we asked that He would cover and blot out our sins with His blood.

    blot out = to destroy all traces of; to make obscure, insignificant, or inconsequential; wipe out, destroy


    We must blot out the memory of wartime troubles
    .I can't read this letter, the ink has run and blotted out half the words.

    A cloud has blotted out the moon.


    The landscape was blotted out by the fog.


    The monarchy was blotted out.


    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Not a teacher only a native speaker.

    I would say you have a very good grasp of the phrase.
