Psalm 52 Commentary

Psalm 7 is titled: shiggaion of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush, a Benjamite.

  • A shiggaion is a word also used in Habbakuk 3:1.  It might mean “erratic wandering” “a feeling of: ‘wild’, ” “a poem written under intense feeling”- after yesterday’s reading, this puts the Psalm into perspective as David is being pursued by thousands- Maybe he is referring to Doeg-the priest killer, who is with Saul and the Benjaminites on this quest.

Psalm 31– I am sure you saw the theme that God is David’s (our)- Refuge, Rock, Fortress BUT in the middle of the Psalm David does admit the negative impact his enemies have had on him.  He is worn down, leaving him lonely and broken.  BUT he concluded with encouragement and returns to the confidence in God that again he is our Refuge. Ending with a message for the reader:

Psalm 34-Even though we don’t know where David was in his journey when this was written, I can’t help but think he may have been saddened by the account of the priests dying from his lie.  He is brokenhearted and crushed in spirit (v. 18) and warns:

Psalm 52-Obviously angry, David expresses his thoughts on the evil that has occurred before he fled.  Innocent men, who helped him were put to death BUT he has full confidence in the Lord that he will defeat those who are a disgrace to God’s eyes.

  1. I’ve read the Psalms many times but knowing the context in which the author wrote them makes it like I’m reading them through a different lens. They came alive in a whole new way—His Word truly is Living!

    Today was one of those days where I just wanted to stay longer and be still in His presence. Psalms 27 ❤️❤️

    The work world is calling so it looks like I’ll have to have Psalms 27 on repeat in my mind and heart today.

    Keep your heads up, saints!
    “For I am confident of this: I(we) will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

    1. I loved your comment. It is so true. To read it through David’s pain was heartbreaking. But:“For I am confident of this: I(we) will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” ❤️
