Psalms Chapter 52

May God Utterly Destroy the Wicked
Listen to "Psalms 52 (May God utterly destroy the wicked)" on Spreaker.

For the end, a Psalm of instruction by David, when Doec the Idumean came and told Saul, and said to him, David is gone to the house of Abimelech.

1 Why dost thou, O mighty men, boast of iniquity in thy mischief? All the day 2 thy tongue has devised unrighteousness; like a sharpened razor thou hast wrought deceit. 3 Thou hast loved wickedness more than goodness; unrighteousness better than to speak righteousness. Pause. 4 Thou hast loved all words of destruction, and a deceitful tongue.

5 Therefore may God destroy thee for ever, may he pluck thee up and utterly remove thee from thy dwelling, and thy root from the land of the living. Pause. 6 And the righteous shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say, 7 Behold the man who made not God his help; but trusted in the abundance of his wealth, and strengthened himself in his vanity.

8 But I am as a fruitful olive in the house of God: I have trusted in the mercy of God for ever, even for evermore. 9 I will give thanks to thee for ever, for thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
