Chapter 52

1

 

 Why do you boast of mischief, mighty man? God's lovingkindness endures continually. 

 

 


2

 

 Your tongue plots destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. 

 

 


3

 

 You love evil more than good, Lying rather than speaking the truth. Selah. 

 

 


4

 

 You love all devouring words, You deceitful tongue. 

 

 


5

 

 God will likewise destroy you forever. He will take you up, and pluck you out of your tent, And root you out of the land of the living. Selah. 

 

 


6

 

 The righteous also will see it, and fear, And laugh at him, saying, 

 

 


7

 

 'Behold, this is the man who didn't make God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness.' 

 

 


8

 

 But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in God's house. I trust in God's lovingkindness forever and ever. 

 

 


9

 

 I will give you thanks forever, because you have done it. I will hope in your name, for it is good, In the presence of your saints. Psalm 53 For the Chief Musician. To the tune of 'Mahalath.' A contemplation by David.
