Psalms 52


God Demolishes the Deceitful

To the director; for contemplation; to David, in the coming of Doeg the Edomite, and announcing to Saul, and telling to him that David went to the house of Ahimelech.

1Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man, with lawlessness the entire day? 2[3injustice 2considers 1Your tongue]; as [2a razor 1sharpening] you did treachery. 3You loved evil over goodness; injustice over speaking righteousness. 4You loved all the [2words 1drowning], [2tongue 1O deceitful]. 5On account of this, God shall demolish you unto the end, to pluck you out, and to migrate you from your tent, and your root from out of the land of the living. 6[2shall see 1The just] and shall fear, and [2at 3him 1shall laugh]. And they shall say, 7Behold, the man who did not make God his helper, but raised hope upon the multitude of his riches, and was strengthened by his folly. 8But I am as [2olive tree 1a fruitful] in the house of God. I hoped upon the mercy of God into the eon, and into the eon of the eon. 9I will make acknowledgment to you into the eon, for you acted; and I will wait on your name, for you are gracious before your sacred ones.
