Psalms 52

Studie

           |

1 To the Overseer. -- An instruction, by David, in the coming in of Doeg the Edomite, and he declareth to Saul, and saith to him, `David came in unto the house of Ahimelech.' What, boasteth thou in evil, O mighty one? The kindness of God [is] all the day.

2 Mischiefs doth thy tongue devise, Like a sharp razor, working deceit.

3 Thou hast loved evil rather than good, Lying, than speaking righteousness. Selah.

4 Thou hast loved all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

5 Also -- God doth break thee down for ever, Taketh thee, and pulleth thee out of the tent, And He hath uprooted thee Out of the land of the living. Selah.

6 And the righteous see, And fear, and laugh at him.

7 `Lo, the man who maketh not God his strong place, And trusteth in the abundance of his riches, He is strong in his mischiefs.'

8 And I, as a green olive in the house of God, I have trusted in the kindness of God, To the age and for ever,

9 I thank Thee to the age, because Thou hast done [it], And I wait [on] Thy name for [it is] good before Thy saints!
