David compared himself to a green olive tree, thriving in the house of God. Not only is an olive tree a thriving tree, it is one of the longest-living trees on earth. David used this metaphor to contrast God’s eternal protection of his faithful servants with the sudden destruction of people with wicked tongues, whom God will uproot and cast away. Please open your Bible to Psalm fifty-two, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola completes his study of Psalms fifty-one through fifty-three.
