Psalm 52

1 <> Why boastest thou in thine own mischief, O mighty man? The goodness of God endureth continually.
2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 Thou lovest evil more than good, and lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah
4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever; He shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous also shall see this and fear, and shall laugh at him:
7 "Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength, but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his own wickedness."
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I will praise Thee for ever, because Thou hast done it, and I will wait on Thy name, for it is good before Thy saints.
