Introduction: “To be betrayed by Doeg the Edomite had been hardly a surprise (Psalm 52, I Sam. 22:22), but now David finds himself rejected by men of his own tribe (I Sam. 23:19ff.; 26:1ff.), in spite of his rescue of one of their border towns from the Philistines (I Sam. 23:1ff.). In this dangerous and disillusioning situation he turns again to God.” (Psalms, Kidner pg. 197).
