Psalm 52

CEB 1 Hey, powerful person! Why do you brag about evil? God's faithful love lasts all day long. 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? CEB 2 Your tongue devises destruction: it's like a sharpened razor, causing deception. NIV 2 Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit. CEB 3 You love evil more than good; you love lying more than speaking what is right. Selah NIV 3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. "Selah" CEB 4 You love all destructive words; you love the deceiving tongue. NIV 4 You love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue! CEB 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 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" CEB 6 The righteous will see and be in awe; they will laugh at those people: NIV 6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at him, saying, CEB 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!" 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!" CEB 8 But I am like a green olive tree in God's house; I trust in God's faithful love forever and always. 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. CEB 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. 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.
