Psalms 52

YLT(i) 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. 2 Mischiefs doth thy tongue devise, Like a sharp razor, working deceit. 3 Thou hast loved evil rather than good, Lying, than speaking righteousness. Selah. 4 Thou hast loved all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. 5 Also—God 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.
6 And the righteous see, And fear, and laugh at him. 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.' 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, 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!
