Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 58



Verses 1-11

Psalm 58

A Judgment Psalm

1. Why God must judge (Psalms 58:1-5)

2. The judgment executed (Psalms 58:6-11)

“Do ye of a truth in silence speak righteousness?” (literal rendering of the first verse). Righteousness is not heard on earth. Wickedness and violence are on the earth, therefore God must arise and deal with these conditions in judgment. It will overtake the wicked and the imprecatory prayers will be answered. Then the righteous will be glad when he seeth the vengeance and it will be said, “Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily He is a God who judgeth the earth.”
