Chapter 52

1

 

  {To the chief Musician: an instruction. Of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David came to the house of Ahimelech.} Why boastest thou thyself in evil, thou mighty man? The loving-kindness of łGod [abideth] continually.  

 

 


2

 

  Thy tongue deviseth mischievous things, like a sharp razor, practising deceit.  

 

 


3

 

  Thou hast loved evil rather than good, lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.  

 

 


4

 

  Thou hast loved all devouring words, O deceitful tongue!  

 

 


5

 

  łGod shall likewise destroy thee for ever; he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of [thy] tent, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.  

 

 


6

 

  The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him, [saying,]  

 

 


7

 

  Behold the man that made not God his strength, but put confidence in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his avarice.  

 

 


8

 

  But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God: I will confide in the loving-kindness of God for ever and ever.  

 

 


9

 

  I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done [it]; and I will wait on thy name, before thy godly ones, for it is good.
