Chapter 51

1

Unto the end, understanding for David,

2

when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul David went to the house of Achimelech

3

Why dost thou glory in malice, thou that art mighty in iniquity?

4

All the day long thy tongue hath devised injustice: as a sharp razor, thou hast wrought deceit.

5

Thou hast loved malice more than goodness: and iniquity rather than to speak righteousness.

6

Thou hast loved all the words of ruin, O deceitful tongue.

7

Therefore will God destroy thee for ever: he will pluck thee out, and remove thee from thy dwelling place: and thy root out of the land of the living.

8

The just shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say:

9

Behold the man that made not God his helper: But trusted in the abundance of his riches: and prevailed in his vanity.

10

But I, as a fruitful olive tree in the house of God, have hoped in the mercy of God for ever, yea for ever and ever.

11

I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saints.

Psalms 52
