Psalm 52. Quid gloriaris?

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Tenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. You tyrant, why do you boast of wickedness *
    against the godly all day long?
  2. You plot ruin; your tongue is like a sharpened razor, *
    O worker of deception.
  3. You love evil more than good *
    and lying more than speaking the truth.
  4. You love all words that hurt, *
    O you deceitful tongue.
  5. Oh, that God would demolish you utterly, *
    topple you, and snatch you from your dwelling, and root you out of the land of the living!
  6. The righteous shall see and tremble, *
    and they shall laugh at him, saying,
  7. "This is the one who did not take God for a refuge, *
    but trusted in great wealth and relied upon wickedness."
  8. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; *
    I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
  9. I will give you thanks for what you have done *
    and declare the goodness of your Name in the presence of the godly.
