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.
