Psalm 52 Trust in the Steadfast Love of God

Psalm 52

Trust in the Steadfast Love of God

1 Why do you boast, O mighty man,

of mischief done against the godly?

All the day 2 you are plotting destruction.

Your tongue is like a sharp razor,

you worker of treachery.

33 You love evil more than good,

and lying more than speaking the truth.

4 You love all words that devour,

O deceitful tongue.

5 But God will break you down for ever;

He will snatch and tear you from your tent;

He will uproot you from the land of the living.

6 The righteous shall see, and fear,

and shall laugh at him, saying,

7 “See the man who would not make

God his refuge,

but trusted in the abundance of his riches,

and sought refuge in his wealth!”

8 But I am like a green olive tree

in the house of God.

I trust in the steadfast love of God

for ever and ever.

Psalm 52 Trust in the Steadfast Love of God

9 I will thank Thee for ever,

because Thou hast done it.

I will proclaim Thy name, for it is good,

in the presence of the godly.

– Psalm 52
