Psalm 52
Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 (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 (4) (4) The leshon (tongue) deviseth treachery; like a sharp ta'ar (razor), working remiyyah (deceit).

3 (5) (5) Thou lovest rah more than tov; and sheker rather than to speak tzedek. Selah.

4 (6) (6) Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou leshon mirmah (deceitful tongue).

5 (7) (7) 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 (8) (8) The tzaddikim also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:

7 (9) (9) 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 (10) (10) But I am like a green zayit (olive tree) in the Beis Elohim; I trust in the chesed Elohim olam va'ed.

9 (11) (11) 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.
