Tehillim 52

Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(For the one directing. A maskil of Dovid. When Doeg HaAdomi [the Edomite] went to Sha’ul and said to him, Dovid has gone to Bais Achimelech). Why boastest thou thyself in ra’ah, O gibbor? The chesed El is kol hayom. 2 The leshon (tongue) deviseth treachery; like a sharp ta’ar (razor), working remiyyah (deceit). 3 Thou lovest rah more than tov; and sheker rather than to speak tzedek. Selah. 4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou leshon mirmah (deceitful tongue). 5 El shall likewise demolish thee for netzach (eternity), He shall break thee, and pluck thee out of thy ohel, and uproot thee out of the Eretz Chayyim. Selah. 6 The tzaddikim also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him: 7 Hinei, this is the gever (man) that made not Elohim his ma’oz; but trusted in the abundance of his osher (riches), and strengthened himself in his treachery. 8  But I am like a green zayit (olive tree) in the Beis Elohim; I trust in the chesed Elohim olam va’ed. 9 I will give Thee thanks l’olam, because Thou hast done it; and I will wait on Shimecha; for it is tov before Thy chasidim.
