Psalms 52

For the choir director: A psalm [1]  of David, regarding the time Doeg the Edomite said to Saul, "David has gone to see Ahimelech."
 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.
