Psalms - Chapter 52 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. A Contemplation {cf2super [44]} of David when Doeg the Edomite went and told Saul, and said to him, 'David has gone to the house of Ahimelech.' Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The goodness of God endures continually.
  • 2. Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
  • 3. You love evil more than good, Lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah
  • 4. You love all devouring words, You deceitful tongue.
  • 5. God shall likewise destroy you forever; He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place, And uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
  • 6. The righteous also shall see and fear, And shall laugh at him, saying,
  • 7. "Here is the man who did not make God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness."
  • 8. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.
  • 9. I will praise You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good.
