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 mercy 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 shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall 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 mercy of God for ever and ever. Psalms 52:9 I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.
