    Psalms 52
    King James Version

    1 Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?
    the goodness of God endureth continually.​
    2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs;
    like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.​
    3 Thou lovest evil more than good;
    and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.​
    4 Thou lovest all devouring words,
    O thou deceitful tongue.​

    5
    God 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.​
    6 The righteous also shall see, and fear,
    and shall laugh at him:​
    7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength;
    but trusted in the abundance of his riches,
    and strengthened himself in his 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 praise thee for ever,
    because thou hast done it:
    and I will wait on thy name;
    for it is good before thy saints.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
