Psalms Psalms 52-54 Summary

Psalm 52

  • This time the evildoer is the one humiliated. Reciprocity, anyone?

Psalm 53

  • Fools here are faithless flippants of God's law. They don't stand a chance in the writer's book—literally.

Psalm 54

  • The writer makes a sacrifice to God in the hopes that it will help him. Given God's history, we're going to go with yes.
