Psalm 52

Why do you boast of your wickedness you champion of evil?
You love evil more than good

You plot destruction; your tongue is like a sharpened razor, you skillful deceiver.
You love evil rather than good, lies rather than honest speech.

You love any word that destroys, you deceitful tongue.
Now God will strike you down, leave you crushed forever, He will snatch you from your tent, uproot you from the land of the living.

The righteous will look on with awe; they will jeer and say:
"That one did not take God as a refuge, but trusted in great wealth, relied on devious plots."

But I, like an olive tree in the house of God, trust in God's faithful love forever.
I will praise you always for what you have done. I will proclaim before the faithful that your name is good.
