52:1 Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of El endureth continually.
52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp rasor, working deceitfully.
52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
52:5 El shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
52:6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
52:7 Lo, this is the man that made not Elohim his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of Elohim: I trust in the mercy of Elohim for ever and ever.
52:9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
