Psalm 52

1 For the leader. A maskil of David, when Do'eg from Edom came and told Sha'ul, "David has arrived at the house of Achimelekh": Why do you boast of your evil, you tyrant, when God's mercy is present every day?
2 Your tongue, as sharp as a razor, plots destruction and works deception.
3 You love evil more than good, lies rather than speaking uprightly. (Selah)
4 You love all words that eat people up, you deceitful tongue!
5 This is why God will strike you down, seize you, pluck you from your tent and uproot you from the land of the living. (Selah)
6 The righteous will see and be awestruck; they will jeer at him, saying,
7 "This fellow would not make God his refuge, but trusted in his own great wealth, relying on his evil plots."
8 But I am like a leafy olive tree in the house of God; I put my trust in the grace of God forever and ever.
9 I will praise you forever for what you have done, and I will put my hope in your name; for this is what is good in the presence of your faithful.
