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.
