Psalms 52

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

Psalms 52:1 {To the chief Musician: an instruction. Of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David came to the house of Ahimelech.} Why boastest thou thyself in evil, thou mighty man? The loving-kindness of *God [abideth] continually. Psalms 52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischievous things, like a sharp razor, practising deceit. Psalms 52:3 Thou hast loved evil rather than good, lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. Psalms 52:4 Thou hast loved all devouring words, O deceitful tongue! Psalms 52:5 *God shall likewise destroy thee for ever; he shall take thee away, 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, and fear, and shall laugh at him, [saying,] Psalms 52:7 Behold the man that made not God his strength, but put confidence in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his avarice.

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 will confide in the loving-kindness of God for ever and ever. Psalms 52:9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done [it]; and I will wait on thy name, before thy godly ones, for it is good.
