Psalm 52

To the chief Musician, *Maschil, A Psalm of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech.

Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O amighty man?

The goodness of God endureth continually.

bThy tongue deviseth cmischiefs;

dLike a sharp rasor, ddworking deceitfully.

Thou lovest evil more than good;

And lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

Thou lovest all devouring words,

||O thou deceitful tongue.

God shall likewise destroy thee for ever,

He shall take thee away, and epluck thee out of thy dwelling place,

And root thee out of fthe land of the living. Selah.

The righteous also shall gsee, and gfear,

And hshall laugh at him:

Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength;

But itrusted in the abundance of his riches,

And strengthened himself in his ||cwickedness.

But I am like ka green olive tree in the house of God:

I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it:

And I will wait on thy name; lfor it is good before mthy saints.
