Psalm 52

BBE 1 <To the chief music-maker. Maschil. Of David. When Doeg the Edomite came to Saul saying, David has come to the house of Ahimelech. Why do you take pride in wrongdoing, lifting yourself up against the upright man all the day? NIV 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? BBE 2 Purposing destruction, using deceit; your tongue is like a sharp blade. NIV 2 Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit. BBE 3 You have more love for evil than for good, for deceit than for works of righteousness. (Selah.) NIV 3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. "Selah" BBE 4 Destruction is in all your words, O false tongue. NIV 4 You love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue! BBE 5 But God will put an end to you for ever; driving you out from your tent, uprooting you from the land of the living. (Selah.) NIV 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. "Selah" BBE 6 The upright will see it with fear, and will say, laughing at you: NIV 6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at him, saying, BBE 7 See, this is the man who did not make God his strength, but had faith in his goods and his property, and made himself strong in his wealth. NIV 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!" BBE 8 But I am like a branching olive-tree in the house of God; I have put my faith in his mercy for ever and ever. NIV 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. BBE 9 I will give you praise without end for what you have done; I will give honour to your name before your saints, for it is good. NIV 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.
