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.
