Psalm 52

1  Why do you glory in evil, you tyrant, 
   while the goodness of God endures continually?
2  You plot destruction, you deceiver; 
   your tongue is like a sharpened razor.
3  You love evil rather than good, 
   falsehood rather than the word of truth.
4  You love all words that hurt, 
   O you deceitful tongue.
5  Therefore God shall utterly bring you down; 
   he shall take you and pluck you out of your tent
      and root you out of the land of the living.
6  The righteous shall see this and tremble; 
   they shall laugh you to scorn, and say:
7  ‘This is the one who did not take God for a refuge, 
   but trusted in great riches and relied upon wickedness.’
8  But I am like a spreading olive tree in the house of God; 
   I trust in the goodness of God for ever and ever.
9  I will always give thanks to you for what you have done; 
   I will hope in your name,
      for your faithful ones delight in it.
