Psalms 52

Psalm 52 KJV

1David reproving the spiteful malice of Doeg, prophesieth his destruction. 6The righteous shall rejoice at it. 8David in confidence of God's mercy giveth him thanks.
To the chief Musician, 1Maschil, A Psalm of David, 2when Doeg the Edomite 3came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech.
1 Why 1boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? 2the goodness of God endureth continually.
2 Thy 1tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 Thou 1lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
4 Thou lovest 1all devouring words, aO thou deceitful tongue.
5 God 1shall likewise adestroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and 2root thee out of 3the land of the living. Selah.
6 The 1righteous also shall see, and fear, and 2shall laugh at him:
7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but 1trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his awickedness.
8 But I am like 1a green olive tree in the house of God: I 2trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I 1will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I 2will wait on thy name; for it is 3good before 4thy saints.
