Psalm 52 New Living Translation

The Futility of Boastful Wickedness

52 1  Why do you boast about your crimes, great warrior? Don't you realize God's justice continues forever? 2  All day long you plot destruction. Your tongue cuts like a sharp razor; you're an expert at telling lies. 3  You love evil more than good and lies more than truth. Interlude 4  You love to destroy others with your words, you liar! 5  But God will strike you down once and for all. He will pull you from your home and uproot you from the land of the living. Interlude

6  The righteous will see it and be amazed. They will laugh and say, 7  "Look what happens to mighty warriors who do not trust in God. They trust their wealth instead and grow more and more bold in their wickedness." 8  But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God. I will always trust in God's unfailing love. 9  I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done. I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people.
