Psalm 52:2-4 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

They are corrupted, and become abominable in iniquities: there is none that doth good.

God looked down from heaven on the children of men: to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God.

All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together, there is none that doth good, no not one.

Psalm 52:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

You who practice deceit,
    your tongue plots destruction;
    it is like a sharpened razor.
You love evil rather than good,
    falsehood rather than speaking the truth.[a]
You love every harmful word,
    you deceitful tongue!


  1. Psalm 52:3 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 5.
