52 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.
Psalm 52:1HEBREW TITLE: A poem by David, after Doeg the Edomite went to Saul and told him that David had gone to the house of Ahimelech.
