Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?

“Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.” Psalm 52:2

Mischief is playful behaviour that is intended to create trouble, and this psalm is about certain individuals who call themselves heroes while plotting evil tricks – they love wickedness far more than good. Do you know there are also Christians like that? Psalm 52:4 says, “Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.” And verse 7 says, “Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.”

David asked, “Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?

Make God your strength; don’t waste your time on working deceitfully; devising mischief, and trusting in uncertain riches, or loving evil more than good. Isn’t it sad that there are believers like that, who strengthen themselves through wicked devices? Psalm 52:5 says, “God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

But David said as for me, “I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.” Psalm 52:8 

Trust in the mercy or provision of God; make him your strength. Know that it is mischief working deceitfully.

God bless,
