|[To the choirmaster.]||God's Judgement & Grace. Psalm 52(v51)|
|A Maskil of David, when Doeg, the Edomite, came and told Saul, "David has come to the house of Ahimelech."|
|Why do you boast, O mighty man, of mischief done against the godly? |
All the day you are plotting destruction.
|Your tongue is like a sharp razor, |
you worker of treachery.
|You love evil more than good, |
and lying more than speaking the truth. [Selah]
|You love all words that devour, |
O deceitful tongue.
|But God will break you down for ever; |
he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
he will uproot you from the land of the living. [Selah]
|The righteous shall see, and fear, |
and shall laugh at him, saying,
|"See the man who would not make God his refuge, |
but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and sought refuge in his wealth!"
|But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. |
I trust in the steadfast love of God for ever and ever.
|I will thank thee for ever, because thou hast done it. |
I will proclaim thy name, for it is good, in the presence of the godly.
