Psalm 52
Douay-Rheims Bible

Why Do You Boast of Mischief?

(1 Samuel 21:10-15; Psalm 34:1-22; Psalm 56:1-13)

1{51:1}Unto the end, understanding for David, [2] When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul: David went to the house of Achimelech. [3] Why dost thou glory in malice, thou that art mighty in iniquity?

2{51:4}All the day long thy tongue hath devised injustice: as a sharp razor, thou hast wrought deceit.

3{51:5}Thou hast loved malice more than goodness: and iniquity rather than to speak righteousness.

4{51:6}Thou hast loved all the words of ruin, O deceitful tongue.

5{51:7}Therefore will God destroy thee for ever: he will pluck thee out, and remove thee from thy dwelling place: and thy root out of the land of the living.

6{51:8}The just shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say:

7{51:9}Behold the man that made not God his helper: But trusted in the abundance of his riches: and prevailed in his vanity.

8{51:10}But I, as a fruitful olive tree in the house of God, have hoped in the mercy of God for ever, yea for ever and ever.

9{51:11}I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saints.
