The righteous (Ps 52:6-52:7)

“The righteous will see.

The righteous will fear.

The righteous will laugh at the evildoer.

They say.

‘See the one who would not take refuge in God.

He trusted in abundant riches.

He sought refuge in wealth!”

The righteous one, probably David, would see.  He feared God.  He would laugh saying that the boastful ones had not taken refuge in God, but had trusted in their own abundant wealth.  The righteous, however, trusted in God, not wealth.
