Deceptive words (Ps 52:4-52:5)

“You love all words that devour.

O deceitful tongue!

But God will break you down forever.

He will snatch you.

He will tear you from your tent.

He will uproot you from the land of the living.”

Selah

This boastful man, probably Saul, loved devouring words since he had a deceitful tongue.  However, God would break him down forever.  He would be snatched and torn from his tent.  He was going to be sent to death, leaving the land of the living.  This section also ends with a meditative musical interlude pause, a Selah.
