1 To the chief musician, a Maskil of David,(52:2)When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Achimelech.(52:3)What vauntest thou thyself of wickedness, O mighty man? the kindness of God endureth all the time.
2 (52:4)Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs, like a sharpened razor, thou worker of deceit.
3 (52:5)Thou lovest evil more than good; falsehood more than speaking righteousness. Selah.
4 (52:6)Thou lovest all words of destruction, the tongue of deceit.
5 (52:7)Therefore God will also destroy thee for ever: he will take thee away, and pluck thee out of his tent, and root thee out of the land of life. Selah.
6 (52:8)And the righteous shall see it, and they will be afraid, and laugh concerning him:
7 (52:9)"Lo, this is the man that made not God his fortress; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, relied proudly on his mischievous wickedness."
8 (52:10)But I am like a green olivetree in the house of God: I trust in the kindness of God for ever and ever.
9 (52:11)I will thank thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good, before thy pious ones.
