The character and judgment of unbelievers.
1–3 The depraved character of the wicked
4–5 God’s judgment of the wicked

- This psalm is nearly identical to Psalm 14. It may be here to help believers have a right view of unbelievers in light of Psalm 52.
- Verse 5 relates how God’s people can fear the threats of the wicked. Why shouldn’t they? Cf. 2 Kings 19:35 for an example.
