Psalm 52

For the music leader. A maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, David has gone to Ahimelech’s house.

1 aHey, powerful person! Why do you brag about evil? God's faithful love lasts all day long. 2 Your tongue devises destruction: it's like a sharpened razor, causing deception. 3 You love evil more than good; you love lying more than speaking what is right. Selah 4 You love all destructive words; you love the deceiving tongue. 5 But God will take you down permanently; he will snatch you up, tear you out of your tent, and uproot you from the land of the living! Selah 6 The righteous will see and be in awe; they will laugh at those people: 7 "Look at them! They didn't make God their refuge. Instead, they trusted in their own great wealth. They sought refuge in it—to their own destruction!" 8 But I am like a green olive tree in God's house; I trust in God's faithful love forever and always. 9 I will give thanks to you, God, forever, because you have acted. In the presence of your faithful people, I will hope in your name because it's so good.
