Psalm 52 Contemporary English Version (CEV)๐Ÿ•Š

(A special psalm by David for the music leader. He wrote this when Doeg from Edom went to Saul and said, โ€œDavid has gone to Ahimelechโ€™s house.โ€)

God Is in Control๐Ÿ•Š

52:1 You people may be strong
and brag about your sins,
but God can be trusted
day after day.
2 You plan brutal crimes,
and your lying words cut
like a sharp razor.
3 You would rather do evil
than good,
and tell lies
than speak the truth.
4 You love to say cruel things,
and your words are a trap.

5 God will destroy you forever!
He will grab you and drag you
from your homes.
You will be uprooted
and left to die.
6 When good people see
this fearsome sight,
they will laugh and say,
7 โ€œJust look at them now!
Instead of trusting God,
they trusted their wealth
and their cruelty.โ€

8 But I am like an olive tree
growing in Godโ€™s house,
and I can count on his love
forever and ever.
9 I will always thank God
for what he has done;
I will praise his good name
when his people meet.๐Ÿ•Š
