Psalm 52 (in 140 characters or less)

Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? Surely God will bring you down to ruin. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God.

Of interest perhaps is King David's lines spoken or read in remembrance of 1 Samuel 22:9 "Then answered Doeg the Edomite, which was set over the servants of Saul, and said, I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.

10 And he enquired of the Lord for him, and gave him victuals, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."

Doeg lied saying Saul's Seer Ahimelech, the Son of Ahitub, inquired of the Lord for David. 1 Samuel 21:7-9 says otherwise:

7 Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the Lord; and his name was Doeg, an Edomite, the chiefest of the herdmen that belonged to Saul.

8 And David said unto Ahimelech, And is there not here under thine hand spear or sword? for I have neither brought my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste.

9 And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom thou slewest in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod: if thou wilt take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me."

Ahimelech gave David bread and the sword of Goliath only. He did not inquire of the Lord for David. But the liar, deceitful Doeg said he did and King Saul believed him. And that lie contributed to the murder of the priests at Nov. That is a back story on Psalm 52.
