Psalms Chapter 52 - New International Version

1. Psalm 52 For the director of music. A [1] of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: "David has gone to the house of Ahimelech."

1. Why do you boast of evil, you mighty man? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?

2. Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit.

3. You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth.

4. You love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue!

5. Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living.

6. The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at him, saying,

7. "Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!"

8. But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever.

9. I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints.
