Psalms 52

Psalms 52:1  
To the chief music-maker. Maschil. Of David. When Doeg the Edomite came to Saul saying, David has come to the house of Ahimelech. Why do you take pride in wrongdoing, lifting yourself up against the upright man all the day?

Psalms 52:2  
Purposing destruction, using deceit; your tongue is like a sharp blade.

Psalms 52:3  
You have more love for evil than for good, for deceit than for works of righteousness. (Selah.)

Psalms 52:4  
Destruction is in all your words, O false tongue.

Psalms 52:5  
But God will put an end to you for ever; driving you out from your tent, uprooting you from the land of the living. (Selah.)

Psalms 52:6  
The upright will see it with fear, and will say, laughing at you:

Psalms 52:7  
See, this is the man who did not make God his strength, but had faith in his goods and his property, and made himself strong in his wealth.

Psalms 52:8  
But I am like a branching olive-tree in the house of God; I have put my faith in his mercy for ever and ever.

Psalms 52:9  
I will give you praise without end for what you have done; I will give honour to your name before your saints, for it is good.
