Psalms

Chapter 52

1

1 For the leader. A maskil of David,

2

when Doeg the Edomite went and told Saul, “David went to the house of Ahimelech.”

3

Why do you glory in evil, you scandalous liar? All day long

4

you plot destruction; your tongue is like a sharpened razor, you skillful deceiver.

5

You love evil rather than good, lies rather than honest speech. Selah

6

You love any word that destroys, you deceitful tongue.

7

Now God will strike you down, leave you crushed forever, Pluck you from your tent, uproot you from the land of the living. Selah

8

The righteous will look on with awe; they will jeer and say:

9

“That one did not take God as a refuge, but trusted in great wealth, relied on devious plots.”

10

2 But I, like an olive tree in the house of God, trust in God’s faithful love forever.

11

I will praise you always for what you have done. I will proclaim before the faithful that your name is good.

1 [Psalm 52] A condemnation of the powerful and arrogant ( Psalm 52:3-6), who bring down upon themselves God’s judgment ( Psalm 52:7). The just, those who trust in God alone, are gladdened and strengthened by the downfall of their traditional enemies ( Psalm 52:8-9).

2 [10] Like an olive tree: the righteous will flourish in the house of God like a well-watered olive tree. Cf  Psalm 92:14;  128:3.
