PSALM 52

Futility of Boastful Wickedness.

For the choir director. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

1 Why do you aboast in evil, O mighty man?

The blovingkindness of God endures all day long.

2 Your tongue devises adestruction,

Like a bsharp razor, cO worker of deceit.

3 You alove evil more than good,

bFalsehood more than speaking what is right.

1Selah.

4 You love all words that devour,

O adeceitful tongue.

5 1But God will break you down forever;

He will snatch you up and atear you away from your tent,

And buproot you from the cland of the living.

Selah.

6 The righteous will asee and fear,

And will blaugh at him, saying,

7 “Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge,

But atrusted in the abundance of his riches

And bwas strong in 1his evil desire.”

8 But as for me, I am like a agreen olive tree in the house of God;

I btrust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.

9 I will agive You thanks forever, because You have done it,

And I will wait on Your name, bfor it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones.

NASB95

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
