Bible New Life Version

Psalm 52

Trust In God's Love

1 Why do you take pride in wrong-doing, O powerful man? The loving-kindness of God lasts all day long.
2 Your tongue makes plans to destroy like a sharp knife, you who lie.
3 You love what is bad more than what is good, and you speak lies more than you speak the truth.
4 You love all words that destroy, O lying tongue.

5 But God will destroy you forever. He will pick you up and pull you away from your tent. He will pull up your roots from the land of the living.
6 And those who are right will see and be afraid. They will laugh at him, saying,
7 "Look, the man who would not make God his safe place, but trusted in his many riches and was strong in his sinful desire."

8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.
9 I will give You thanks forever because of what You have done. And I will hope in Your name, for it is good to be where those who belong to You are.
