Chapter 52

 

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.

1

Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of El 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

El 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 Elohim 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 Elohim: I trust in the lovingkindness of Elohim 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.
