Psalm 52

Why, O man of power, do you boast all the day long :
 of mischief done to him that is faithful to God?
You contrive destroying slanders :
 your tongue is like a sharpened razor, it cuts deceitfully.
You have loved evil, and not good :
 to tell lies, rather than to speak the truth.
You love all words that may do hurt :
 and every deceit of the tongue.
But God will destroy you utterly :
 he will snatch you away and pluck you out of your dwelling,
   he will uproot you from the land of the living.
The righteous shall see it, and fear :
 they shall laugh you to scorn, and say,
‘Behold, this is the man who did not take God for his strength :
 but trusted in the abundance of his riches,
   and found his strength in slander.’
As for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God :
 I will trust in the goodness of God for ever and ever.
I will always give you thanks, for this was your doing :
 I will glorify your name before the faithful,
   for it is good to praise you.

Psalm 53

The fool has said in his heart ‘There is no God’ :
 they have all become vile and abominable in their wickedness,
   there is not one that does good.
God looked down from heaven upon the children of men :
 to see if there were any who would act wisely and seek after God.
But they have all turned aside, they have all alike become corrupt :
 there is none that does good, no not one.
Are all the evildoers devoid of understanding :
 who eat up my people as men eat bread, and do not pray to God?
They shall be struck with terror :
 for God will scatter the bones of the ungodly.
They shall be put to confusion :
 because God has rejected them.
O that deliverance for Israel might come forth from Zion :
 when the Lord turns again the fortunes of his people,
   then shall Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
