 Psalms << Ps : 51 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυιδ God's Judgement & Grace. Psalm 52(v51)For the end a Psalm of instruction by David
2 ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν Δωηκ τὸν Ιδουμαῖον καὶ ἀναγγεῖλαι τῷ Σαουλ καὶ εἰπεῖν αὐτῷ Ἦλθεν Δαυιδ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Αβιμελεχ.  when Doec the Idumean came and told Saul and said to him David is gone to the house of Abimelech.
3 Τί ἐγκαυχᾷ ἐν κακίᾳ, ὁ δυνατός,
ἀνομίαν ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν;
 Why do you, O mighty man,
boast of iniquity in your mischief? All the day
4 ἀδικίαν ἐλογίσατο ἡ γλῶσσά σου·
ὡσεὶ ξυρὸν ἠκονημένον ἐποίησας δόλον.
 your tongue has devised unrighteousness;
like a sharpened razor you have wrought deceit.
5 ἠγάπησας κακίαν ὑπὲρ ἀγαθωσύνην,
ἀδικίαν ὑπὲρ τὸ λαλῆσαι δικαιοσύνην. διάψαλμα.
 You have loved wickedness more than goodness;
unrighteousness better than to speak righteousness. Pause.
6 ἠγάπησας πάντα τὰ ῥήματα καταποντισμοῦ,
γλῶσσαν δολίαν.
 You has loved all words of destruction,
and a deceitful tongue.
7 διὰ τοῦτο ὁ θεὸς καθελεῖ σε εἰς τέλος·
ἐκτίλαι σε καὶ μεταναστεύσαι σε ἀπὸ σκηνώματος,
καὶ τὸ ῥίζωμά σου ἐκ γῆς ζώντων.
 Therefore may God destroy you for ever,
may he pluck you up and utterly remove you from your dwelling,
and your root from the land of the living.
8 καὶ ὄψονται δίκαιοι καὶ φοβηθήσονται,
καὶ ἐπ' αὐτὸν γελάσονται καὶ ἐροῦσιν
 And the righteous shall see, and fear,
and shall laugh at him, and say,
9 Ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος, ὃς οὐκ ἔθετο τὸν θεὸν βοηθὸν αὐτοῦ,
ἀλλ' ἐπήλπισεν ἐπὶ τὸ πλῆθος τοῦ πλούτου αὐτοῦ,
καὶ ἐδυναμώθη ἐπὶ τῇ ματαιότητι αὐτοῦ.
 Behold the man who made not God his help;
but trusted in the abundance of his wealth,
and strengthened himself in his vanity.
10 ἐγὼ δὲ ὡσεὶ ἐλαία κατάκαρπος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ·
ἤλπισα ἐπὶ τὸ ἔλεος τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος.
 But I am as a fruitful olive in the house of God:
I have trusted in the mercy of God for ever, even for evermore.
11 ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, ὅτι ἐποίησας,
καὶ ὑπομενῶ τὸ ὄνομά σου, ὅτι χρηστὸν ἐναντίον τῶν ὁσίων σου.
 I will give thanks to you for ever, for you have done it:
and I will wait on your name; for it is good before the saints.
