Psalms Chapter 53

Psalms 53:1

psa 53:1

Upon Mahalath--(See on Psa 88:1, title). Why this repetition of the fourteenth Psalm is given we do not know. (Psa 53:1-6)

with few verbal changes, correspond with Psa 14:1-4.

Psalms 53:5

psa 53:5

Instead of assurances of God's presence with the pious, and a complaint of the wicked, Psa 14:5-6 portrays the ruin of the latter, whose "bones" even "are scattered" (compare Psa 141:7), and who are put to shame as contemptuously rejected of God.
