  • Psalms 49-54
  • Psalms 49:1 – The high, low, poor, and rich will all be alike in death.
  • Psalms 49:12 – Man’s body decays just like the bodies of beasts.
  • Psalms 50:10 – See Acts 17:25
  • Psalms 51:16-17 – God wants a contrite heart first before the sacrifices are acceptable.
  • Psalms 51:5 – This verse is often misused in Calvinist doctrine. We know that it does not mean David was sinful at birth (Ezekiel 18:2-4). Matthew 18:3 also tells us that children are not in sin.
    • Psalms 71:6; 139:13-14; 58:3
    • We know that this birth is not saying David was born out of wedlock. See Ruth 4:22. David was in the line to Christ and was certainly not illegitimate.
  • Psalms 53:1 – Declaring that there is no God identifies you as a fool regardless of your intellectual accomplishments.
  • Psalms 53:6 – See Ephesians 4:8, which applies this passage to those who are captives of sin.
