Psalm 52

1 Why do you boast, great one, of your evil? God's faithfulness is eternal.
2 You make plans to ruin others; your tongue is like a sharp razor. You are always inventing lies.
3 You love evil more than good and falsehood more than truth.
4 You love to hurt people with your words, you liar!
5 So God will ruin you forever; he will take hold of you and snatch you from your home; he will remove you from the world of the living.
6 Righteous people will see this and be afraid; then they will laugh at you and say,
7 "Look, here is someone who did not depend on God for safety, but trusted instead in great wealth and looked for security in being wicked."
8 But I am like an olive tree growing in the house of God; I trust in his constant love forever and ever.
9 I will always thank you, God, for what you have done; in the presence of your people I will proclaim that you are good.
