Chapter 52

1

  For the Chief Musician. Maschil of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Abimelech. Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God [endureth] continually.

2

 Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

3

 Thou lovest evil more than good, And lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah

4

 Thou lovest all devouring words, thou deceitful tongue.

5

 God will likewise destroy thee for ever; He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent, And root thee out of the land of the living. Selah

6

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

7

 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness.

8

 But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God: I trust in the lovingkindness of God for ever and ever.

9

 I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it; And I will hope in thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.
