PSALM LII. Chapter Overview

The wickedness of Doeg, and his doom, verse 1-5.
The righteous will see it and fear, verse 6, 7.
David comforts himself in God, verse 8, 9.
To the chief musician, Maschil, A psalm of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech.

Verse 1
Continually - God is continually doing good: thou art continually doing mischief. O mighty - He speaks ironically. O valiant captain! To kill a few weak and unarmed persons.

Verse 2
Deviseth - Expresses what thy wicked mind had devised. Deceitfully - Doeg pretended only to vindicate himself from disloyalty, 1 Samuel 22:8, but he really intended to expose the priests, to the king's fury.

Verse 5
Pluck thee - Violently and suddenly as the Hebrew word signifies, from thy house and lands, and all the wages of thy righteousness. Root - Though thou seemest to have taken deep root, yet God shall pluck thee up by the very roots, and destroy thee both root and branch.

Verse 6
Fear - Reverence God's just judgment.

Verse 8
The house - In God's church, or among his people.

Verse 9
Thou hast - Destroyed mine and thine implacable enemies, and established me in the throne, of which I am no less assured, than if it were already done. I will continue in thy way, placing my whole confidence in thy power and goodness, and faithfulness. Before - In the presence of thy saints.
