David, condemning the spitefulness of Doeg, prophesieth his destruction.
Psalms 52:1 To the Overseer.An instruction, by David, in the coming in of Doeg the Edomite, and he declareth to Saul, and saith to him, 'David came in unto the house of Ahimelech.' What, boasteth thou in evil, O mighty one? The kindness of God [is] all the day. Psalms 52:2 Mischiefs doth thy tongue devise, Like a sharp razor, working deceit. Psalms 52:3 Thou hast loved evil rather than good, Lying, than speaking righteousness. Selah. Psalms 52:4 Thou hast loved all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. Psalms 52:5 AlsoGod doth break thee down for ever, Taketh thee, and pulleth thee out of the tent, And He hath uprooted thee Out of the land of the living. Selah.
The righteous shall rejoice at it.
Psalms 52:6 And the righteous see, And fear, and laugh at him. Psalms 52:7 'Lo, the man who maketh not God his strong place, And trusteth in the abundance of his riches, He is strong in his mischiefs.'
David, upon his confidence in God's mercy, giveth thanks.
Psalms 52:8 And I, as a green olive in the house of God, I have trusted in the kindness of God, To the age and for ever, Psalms 52:9 I thank Thee to the age, because Thou hast done [it], And I wait [on] Thy name for [it is] good before Thy saints!
