The Psalmist Was Deceived

Psa 55:23  But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.  

Observe, he was a man deceived. Somebody he trusted had proven false, and it had almost broken David's heart.

Psa 55:12  For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

Psa 55:13  But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

Psa 55:14  We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

A man his equal, his guide and his acquaintance to whom he used to turn for loving counsel;

A man with whom, on quiet Sabbath mornings, he used to walk unto the house of God;

A man whose friendship he had never doubted and on whose loyalty he would have staked his life had played the part of Iscariot to the psalmist.

What a devastating revelation!

What a tragic and desolating hour!

How many people have lost their faith in God when they have lost it in a man or woman?

Yet David, amid the ruins of that friendship, deserted by one he clung to as a brother, says, "But I will trust in thee."
