[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Psalm 52, David describes the character of an evil man, Doeg, and the fate that awaits him contrasted with the blessing that God will send upon the righteous.
David asks the mighty man, Doeg, why he boasts in his mischief. The goodness (chesed, mercy) of God endures perpetually. His tongue devises mischief (weaves calamities). It is razor sharp and works deceitfully (treacherously). He loves evil more than good, and lying more than righteousness (1-3).
He has affection for devouring and deceit. But God will destroy him forever, take him away, remove him from his dwelling place, and root him out of the land of the living (4-5).
The righteous (or just person) will see it, and revere God, and laugh at him. This is the fate of the man who does not make God his strength, but trusts in the abundance of his riches, and strengthens himself in his wickedness. But David, who trusts in God constantly, will be like a green olive tree in the house of God. He will praise God forever because God has accomplished this deliverance; so he will wait on God's goodness which he displays to his saints (6-9).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

Deliverance from Sinners and from Sin
Nearly all the Psalms (except Psalm 90) were written during the 612 year period
from the time of David around 1016 B. C. to the close of the Canon in about 404 B. C.
Psalm 90, according to its superscription, was written by Moses; this may have been around 1406 B. C.

A Psalm of David,
when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul,
and said unto him,
David is come to the house of Ahimelech. *
Why boastest thou thyself in mischief,
O mighty man?
the goodness of God endureth continually [all of the day].
2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs;
like a sharp razor,
3 Thou lovest evil more than good;
and lying rather than to speak righteousness.
4 Thou lovest all devouring words,
O thou deceitful tongue.
5 God shall likewise destroy thee
he shall take thee away,
and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place,
and root thee out of the land of the living.
6 The righteous also shall see,
and shall laugh at him:
7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength;
but trusted in the abundance of his riches,
and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God:
I trust in the mercy of God
for ever and ever.
9 I will praise thee
because thou hast done it:
and I will wait on thy name;
for it is good before thy saints.
* NOTE: On Opening and Closing Comments in the Psalms.
[Some commentators take the Psalm in Habakkuk 3 to be a standard model for the Psalms.
Habakkuk's Psalm begins with the name of the composer (Habakkuk) and a musical notation ("upon Shigionoth").
It closes with a dedication or a "send to" notice ("To the chief singer on my stringed instruments").
I have arranged similar material, where it is found in the Psalter, in accord with the model in Habakkuk.]
