Upon Mahalath—(See on Ps 88:1,
title). Why this repetition of the fourteenth Psalm is given we do not
1-4. with few verbal changes, correspond with
5. Instead of assurances of God's presence
with the pious, and a complaint of the wicked, Ps 14:5, 6 portrays the ruin of the latter, whose
"bones" even "are scattered" (compare Ps 141:7), and who are put to shame as
contemptuously rejected of God.
