Psalm 51
Unto the end, understanding for David,
When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul:
David went to the house of Achimelech.


Why dost thou glory in malice, thou that art mighty in iniquity?

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

Thou hast loved malice more than goodness:
and iniquity rather than to speak righteousness.

Thou hast loved all the words of ruin, O deceitful tongue.

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.

The just shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say:
Behold the man that made not God his helper:
But trusted in the abundance of his riches:
and prevailed in his vanity.

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.

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.
