Psalm 58

God the righteous judge will judge wicked judges.

1–5 The sins of wicked judges
6–9 God’s judgment
10–11 The hope of the righteous

  • “Gods” in verse 1 refers to men who were supposed to render judgment in Israel as faithful leaders.
  • While the exact meaning of verse 9 isn’t clear, the point of certain judgment is.
  • Verse 10b is an image of victory. See also Isaiah 63:1–6; Revelation 14:19–20; 19:13–14.
