Jesus, The Messiah, The Holy One

Psalm 53 is a recasting of Psalm 14 with only slight differences, particularly in the ending. Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary.
Iniquity – Wickedness, Vice
“The Fool,” III, Psalm 53:6) Oh that THE SALVATION Of Israel Were Come Out Of Zion! When GOD Bringeth Back The Captivity Of HIS People, Jacob Shall Rejoice And Israel Shall Be Glad.
John Gill’s Exposition Of The Bible – v6, O that The Salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! &c.] Or, “who will give F6 out of Zion The Salvation of Israel?” The Targum adds, “except THE LORD”; and this is a request to HIM for It: and, as in ( Psalms 14:7 ) , it may be a wish for THE FIRST COMING OF CHRIST, TO WORK OUT SALVATION FOR HIS PEOPLE; here it may be expressive of the desire of The Church For HIS COMING IN A SPIRITUAL MANNER, in the latter day, TO TAKE TO HIMSELF HIS GREAT POWER, AND REIGN; TO DESTROY antichrist, AND DELIVER HIS PEOPLE FROM BONDAGE AND OPPRESSION BY him (antichrist); when the Gentiles shall be gathered in, the Jews will be converted, and all Israel Saved; see ( Romans 11:25 Romans 11:26 ) . It is in the original text, “Salvation’s” F7; Denoting The Complete Salvation Of THE CHURCH; when all Her enemies will be destroyed, and all Peace and Prosperity shall be enjoyed by Her (The Church) ; (See Gill on Psalms 14:6). When GOD Bringeth Back the captivity of HIS People: who have been carried into it by antichrist, ( Revelation 13:10 ) ; Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad; for now the kingdoms of this world will become CHRIST’S; The Marriage Of THE LAMB Will Be Come, And The Bride Made Ready, Through The CALLING Of The Gentiles, And The Conversion Of The Jews; which will occasion The Twenty Four Elders, The Representatives Of The Christian Church, To Give Thanks To THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, And Cause Many Voices To Be Heard In HEAVEN, Expressing Great Joy On This Occasion, ( Revelation 11:15-18 ) ( 19:1-7 ) .
Quest Study Bible – v1-6, SCRIPTURE LINK “The fool says in his heart,” The same thoughts can be found in 14:1-7. v1-6, “Why are some Verses repeated in Scripture?” The Psalm seems to be a repetition and revision of Psalm 14. One difference—GOD is used in place of LORD—leads some to believe this Psalm was written a few centuries later, possibly during the reign of Hezekiah. By that time many regarded YAHWEH (LORD) As More Than Just THE GOD Of Israel. Others, however, wonder if David may have made slight revisions so the Psalm could be used for another occasion or with different music. Whatever the reason, the result is that THE TRUTH Is Emphasized. See “Why repeat these Verses, almost Word for Word?” (2 Kings 14:15-16) and “Why is this information repeated?” (Jeremiah 52:1-24).
Quest Study Bible – v6, “How And When Did GOD Restore Israel’s Fortunes?” This is a generic Prayer that would fit numerous situations in Israel’s history. Some suggest it refers to the time that Israel was restored when the Arameans, hearing the sounds of chariots and horses, even though there were none, abandoned a siege of Samaria (2 Kings 7:6-7).
Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – The Corruption Of Man By Nature. This Psalm is almost the same as the 14th. The scope of It is to convince us or our sins. GOD, By The Psalmist, Here Shows Us How Bad We Are, And Proves This By HIS OWN CERTAIN KNOWLEDGE. HE SPEAKS Terror To Persecutors, the worst of sinners. HE SPEAKS Encouragement To GOD’S Persecuted People. How comes it that men are so bad? Because there is no FEAR OF GOD before their eyes. Men’s bad practices flow from their bad principles; if they profess to Know GOD, yet in works, because in thoughts, they Deny HIM. See the folly of sin; he is a fool, In The Account Of GOD, WHOSE JUDGMENT, We Are Sure Is RIGHT, (Yet we) harbor such Corrupt Thoughts. And see the Fruit of Sin; to what it brings men, when their hearts are hardened through The Deceitfulness of Sin. See Also THE FAITH Of The Saints, and their Hope and Power as to the Cure of this great evil. THERE WILL COME A SAVIOR, A GREAT SALVATION, A SALVATION FROM SIN. GOD WILL SAVE HIS CHURCH FROM ITS ENEMIES. HE WILL SAVE ALL BELIEVERS FROM THEIR OWN SINS, THAT THEY MAY NOT BE LED CAPTIVE BY THEM, AND THIS WILL BE EVERLASTING JOY TO THEM. FROM THIS WORK THE REDEEMER HAD HIS NAME JESUS, FOR HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS, Matthew 1:21. Amen.
Matthew 1:21) And she shall bring forth a SON, and thou shalt call HIS NAME JESUS: FOR HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS. Genesis 49:10. Amen.
