Psalm 52

21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

52 Why boastest thou in thine own mischief, O mighty man? The goodness of God endureth continually.

Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

Thou lovest evil more than good, and lying rather than speaking righteousness. Selah

Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

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

The righteous also shall see this and fear, and shall laugh at him:

“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.”

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

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.
