Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible
Psalms 53



Verses 1-4

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

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

Verse 5

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