Studying Psalm 52

Psalm 52 brought out a stark contrast for us to note:

For those who have deceitful tongues, believe in and speak falsehood rather than God's righteousness,
GOD 'breaks you down forever' (v5a) and 'uproot' (v5c) you.

But for the righteous who trusts in His lovingkindness forever and waits on His name,
GOD roots them like 'green olive trees in His house' (v8a) and grants them fruitfulness (green implies fruitfulness).

Would you rather be like the first or second picture below?
