Psalm 52

By God’s grace I flourish in his presence like a healthy olive tree, trusting forever in the loyal covenant love of Elohim. I thank him for what he has done on my behalf, expressing my praise aloud when believers gather for public worship.

            I am continually protected by God’s loyal covenant love, but it amazes me that you strong men make a show of your damaging treatment of others. You deal in lies, ignoring truth. Your words weave and fabricate destruction since you prefer confusion to order – but God is not a god of confusion, but of order!                                                                                

Pause and think about that for a moment.

     The supreme, Triune God, Elohim will lay hold of you, pluck you out of your dwelling place, requiring your life from you, and destroy you forever.                      

You would be wise to ponder that!

     Those to whom God has given his righteousness will stand in awe of his dealings with you. They will mock you saying, “Here is one who refused to make God his stronghold, looking only to himself for strength and protection. He made himself wealthy by destroying others!”

     But I, by God’s grace, flourish in his presence like a healthy olive tree, trusting forever in the loyal covenant love of Elohim. I thank him for what he has done on my behalf, expressing my praise aloud when believers gather for public worship.
