According to the superscription Psalm 52 is a Maskil or Contemplative Song written by David. He wrote it on the occasion of the treachery of Doeg the Edomite (1 Samuel 21-22). In the context, this mighty man is Doeg. Doeg reported to Saul that Ahimelech the High Priest had provided food and shelter for David. As a result, Saul ordered the execution of Ahimelech. When his soldiers refused to execute the High Priest, Does stepped in and did the deed. Distraught over the events, David penned this psalm chiding the treachery of Doeg and contrasting the foolish man to the faithful man.
