Psalms 52 (asv)
52:1Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?
The lovingkindness of God endureth continually.
52:2Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness,
Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
And lying rather than to speak righteousness.
52:4Thou lovest all devouring words,
thou deceitful tongue.
52:5God will likewise destroy thee for ever;
He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent,
And root thee out of the land of the living.
52:6The righteous also shall see it, and fear,
And shall laugh at him, saying,
But trusted in the abundance of his riches,
And strengthened himself in his wickedness.
I trust in the lovingkindness of God for ever and ever.
52:9I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it;
