Psalm 52 (CSB)
For the choir director. A Maskil of David. When Doeg the Edomite went and reported to Saul, telling him, “David went to Ahimelech’s house.”
1 Why boast about evil, you hero! God’s faithful love is constant.
2 Like a sharpened razor, your tongue devises destruction, working treachery.
3 You love evil instead of good, lying instead of speaking truthfully. Selah
4 You love any words that destroy, you treacherous tongue!
5 This is why God will bring you down forever. He will take you, ripping you out of your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous will see and fear, and they will derisively say about that hero,
7 “Here is the man who would not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his riches, taking refuge in his destructive behavior.”
8 But I am like a flourishing olive tree in the house of God; I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever.
9 I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.
Everything that I have
- And all that I got
- It is in you.
I have nowhere else to go
- And no one else to turn to
- You are my righteousness
- In you, I will trust.
I will bless your name forever
- I will worship your name on high
- I will proclaim your word to everyone
- I will preach your gospel to the end
- I will love you forever
- I will fear you for my life
- I will be still
- And know you are my God.
