Bible Commentary for Psalms 52:3

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 52:3

52:2 Deviseth - Expresses what thy wicked mind had devised. Deceitfully - Doeg pretended only to vindicate himself from disloyalty, #1Sam 22:8|, but he really intended to expose the priests, to the king's fury.

52:5 Pluck thee - Violently and suddenly as the Hebrew word signifies, from thy house and lands, and all the wages of thy righteousness. Root - Though thou seemest to have taken deep root, yet God shall pluck thee up by the very roots, and destroy thee both root and branch.
