(A special psalm by David for the music leader. He wrote this when Doeg from Edom went to Saul and said, “David has gone to Ahimelech’s house.”)
God Is in Control
52 You people may be strong and brag about your sins, but God can be trusted day after day. 2 You plan brutal crimes, and your lying words cut like a sharp razor. 3 You would rather do evil than good, and tell lies than speak the truth. 4 You love to say cruel things, and your words are a trap.
5 God will destroy you forever! He will grab you and drag you from your homes. You will be uprooted and left to die. 6 When good people see this fearsome sight, they will laugh and say, 7 “Just look at them now! Instead of trusting God, they trusted their wealth and their cruelty.”
8 But I am like an olive tree growing in God’s house, and I can count on his love forever and ever. 9 I will always thank God for what he has done; I will praise his good name when his people meet.
