Psalm 52 Wednesday Readings 2
Why brag of wickedness, strong man? * El's worshiper, why all day concoct harm?
Your tongue is like a sharpened razor, * artist of deceit!
You prize evil over good, * lying over telling the truth.
You love all the speech * of your destructive deceitful tongue!
With a crash may El demolish you, * forever unchild you!
May he pluck you from your tent, * and snatch live your sons from the earth!<
The just will look on in dread, * but then will laugh at him:
“So this is the man who would not * make God his refuge,
but trusted in the greatness of his wealth, * and relied on his wickedness.”
I, for my part, like an olive tree * flourishing in the house of God,
trust in the love * of the eternal and everlasting God.
I praise you, the Eternal, * because you acted,
and I will proclaim your Name, * so good to your worshipers!
