Psalm 52


(English translation got from website: )

  1. For the conductor, a maskil of David.
  2. When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, “David came to the house of Ahimelech.”
  3. Why do you boast of evil, you mighty man? God’s kindness is constant.
  4. Your tongue plots destruction, as a sharpened razor, working deceit.
  5. You loved evil more than good, falsehood more than speaking righteousness forever.
  6. You loved all destructive words, a deceitful tongue.
  7. God, too, shall tear you down forever; He will break you and pluck you from [your] tent, and uproot you from the land of the living forever.
  8. And righteous men will see and fear, and laugh at him.
  9. “Behold the man who does not place his strength in God and trusts his great wealth; he strengthened himself in his wickedness.”
  10. But I am like a fresh olive tree in the house of God; I have trusted in the kindness of God forever and ever.
  11. I will thank You forever and ever when You have done [this], and I will hope for Your name, for it is good, in the presence of Your devoted ones.
