"There is no faithfulness in their mouth..."
Day 40 – Psalm 5
“There is no faithfulness in their mouth…” Psalm 5:9a
TWO PERSPECTIVES CONCERNING THE WICKED
Psalm 5 offers two perspectives concerning the wicked.
THE FIRST PERSPECTIVE
The first one describes how God regards the wicked (Psalm 5:4-6). The second one is found in the text below:-
“For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
Their inward part is destruction;
Their throat is an open tomb;
They flatter with their tongue.”
THE SECOND PERSPECTIVE
David was unafraid to learn more about the activities of the wicked. As king, it was necessary for him to understand how the wicked thought and functioned. Deep knowledge would not only be necessary, it would be safe!
