|Psalms 52 |
1 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The goodness of God endures continually.
2 Your tongue devises wickedness; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 You love evil more than good, and lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah.
4 You love all devouring words, O deceitful tongue.
5 God shall likewise destroy you forever; he shall take you away and pluck you out of your dwelling place and up root you out of the land of the living. Selah.
6 The righteous shall see and fear, and shall laugh at you, saying,
7 "See, this is the man who did not make God his strength but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness."
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.
9 I will praise you forever, because you have done it. In the presence of your saints I will wait in your name, for it is good.
