Psalm 52:2-4 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

Thy tongue devises wickedness like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

Thou dost love evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

Thou dost love all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

Psalm 52:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

You who practice deceit,
    your tongue plots destruction;
    it is like a sharpened razor.
You love evil rather than good,
    falsehood rather than speaking the truth.[a]
You love every harmful word,
    you deceitful tongue!


  1. Psalm 52:3 The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 5.
