Psalms 52

David, condemning the spitefulness of Doeg, prophesieth his destruction.

Psalms 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 Ahimelech.} Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God [endureth] continually. Psalms 52:2 Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. Psalms 52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good, And lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. Psalms 52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. Psalms 52:5 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.

The righteous shall rejoice at it.

Psalms 52:6 The righteous also shall see [it], and fear, And shall laugh at him, [saying], Psalms 52:7 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.

David, upon his confidence in God's mercy, giveth thanks.

Psalms 52:8 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. Psalms 52:9 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.
