Trust in God (Ps 55:22-55:23)

“Cast your burden on Yahweh!

He will sustain you.

He will never permit

The righteous to be moved.

But You!

O God!,

Will cast them down into the lowest pit.

The  bloodthirsty and treacherous

Shall not live out half their days.

But I will trust in you.”

This psalm ends with the comparison between those who trust in God, David, and the bloodthirsty and treacherous enemies, the foes, and the traitors to David.  Yahweh will sustain David.  He will not be moved.  However, he wanted God to send his enemies to the pit, the grave, death.  He wanted them to live out only half their days.  David trusted in Yahweh.  He wanted his foes gone, dead.
