Tehilim Chapter 52

tehilim 052


1. To the chief Musician, A Maskil of David.
2. When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said to him, David has come to the house of Ahimelech.
3. Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The love of God lasts for all time.
4. Your tongue devises mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
5. You love evil more than good; and lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah.
6. You love all devouring words, O you deceitful tongue.
7. God shall likewise destroy you for ever, he shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place, and root you out of the land of the living. Selah.
8. And the righteous shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him;
9. Behold, this is the man who did not make God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
10. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the love of God for ever and ever.
11. I will give you thanks for ever, because you have done it; and I will wait on your name, for it is good, before your pious ones.
