(4) The leshon (tongue) deviseth treachery; like a sharp ta’ar (razor), working remiyyah (deceit).

(5) Thou lovest rah more than tov; and sheker rather than to speak tzedek. Selah.

(6) Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou leshon mirmah (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.
