Salme 52

Guds straf over en ond „helt”

11-2 Til korlederen: En visdomssang af David, dengang Edomitten Doeg fortalte Saul, at David havde søgt hjælp hos Ahimelek.[a]

Hvorfor prale af din ondskab, du stærke mand?
    Gud er trofast, og han beskytter mig dag efter dag.
Hele tiden lægger du onde planer.
    Dine ord er dødbringende som skarpe knive.
Du foretrækker ondt frem for godt,
    løgn frem for sandhed.
Du elsker at sige noget, som kan skade andre.
    Hvor er du fuld af falskhed.
Men Gud vil gøre det af med dig,
    rive dig bort fra dit hjem,
        rykke dig op fra de levendes land.
Når de gudfrygtige ser det, vil de gyse,
    de vil håne dig og sige:
„Sådan går det dem,
    der ikke regner med Gud,
men stoler på deres rigdom
    og praler af deres ondskab.”

10 Men jeg er som et frodigt oliventræ,
    der trives i Herrens hus.
        Jeg stoler altid på hans trofasthed og nåde.
11 Herre, jeg vil takke dig for alt, hvad du gør for mig,
    jeg vil forkynde din godhed i dine tjeneres nærvær.

Psalm 52

Psalm 52

For the director of music. A maskil of David when Doeg, who was from Edom, had gone to Saul. Doeg had told Saul, “David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.”

You think you are such a big, strong man!
    Why do you brag about the evil things you’ve done?
    You are a dishonor to God all the time.
You plan ways to destroy others.
    Your tongue is like a blade that has a sharp edge.
    You are always telling lies.
You love evil instead of good.
    You would rather lie than tell the truth.
    You love to harm others with your words, you liar!

So God will destroy you forever.
    He will grab you and pluck you from your tent.
    He will remove you from this life.
Those who do what is right will see it and learn a lesson from it.
    They will laugh at you and say,
“Just look at this fellow!
    He didn’t depend on God for his safety.
He put his trust in all his wealth.
    He grew strong by destroying others!”

But I am like a healthy olive tree.
    My roots are deep in the house of God.
I trust in your faithful love
    for ever and ever.
I will praise you forever for what you have done.
    I will praise you when I’m with your faithful people.
    I will put my hope in you because you are good.
