Psalm 52

The Steadfast Love of God Endures

To the choirmaster. A Maskil of David, when Doeg, the Edomite, came and told Saul, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

1 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The steadfast love of God endures all the day.
2 Your 1tongue plots destruction, like 2a sharp razor, you 3worker of deceit.
3 You love evil more than good, and 4lying more than speaking what is right. Selah
4 You love all words that devour, O deceitful tongue.
5 But God will break you down forever; he will snatch and 5tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from 6the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous shall 7see and fear, and shall 8laugh at him, saying,
7 "See the man who would not make God his refuge, but 9trusted in the abundance of his riches and sought refuge in his own destruction!"a
8 But I am like 10a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever.
9 I will thank you forever, because you have done it. I will wait for your name, 11for it is good, in the presence of the 12godly.
