Psalms 52

The Steadfast Love of God Endures

To the choirmaster. A Maskil
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of David, when bDoeg, the Edomite, came and told Saul, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

1 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
The steadfast love of God endures all the day.
2Your ctongue plots destruction,
like da sharp razor, you eworker of deceit.
3You love evil more than good,
and flying more than speaking what is right.  Selah
4You love all words that devour,
O deceitful tongue.
5 But God will break you down forever;
he will snatch and gtear you from your tent;
he will uproot you from hthe land of the living.  Selah
6The righteous shall isee and fear,
and shall jlaugh at him, saying,
7See the man who would not make
God his refuge,
but ktrusted in the abundance of his riches
and sought refuge in his own destruction!”
Or  in his work of destruction

8 But I am like ma green olive tree
in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
forever and ever.
9I will thank you forever,
because you have done it.
I will wait for your name, nfor it is good,
in the presence of the ogodly.
