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.
