Psalm 52


The Steadfast Love of God Endures



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A MASKIL OF DAVID, WHEN DOEG, 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. 

      2 Your tongue plots destruction, 

      like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit. 

      3 You love evil more than good, 

      and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah 

      4 You love all words that devour, 

      O deceitful tongue. 


      5 But God will break you down forever; 

      he will snatch and tear you from your tent; 

      he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah 

      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 own destruction!” 


      8 But I am like a green olive tree 

      in the house of God. 

      I trust in the steadfast love of God 

      forever and ever. 

      9 I will thank you forever, 

      because you have done it. 

      I will wait for your name, for it is good, 

      in the presence of the godly.
