To the Chief Musician. Maschil. A Psalm of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said to him, David has come to the house of Ahimelech.
1 Why do you boast yourself in evil, O mighty man? The Mighty God is good daily.
2 Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 You love evil more than good, and lying more than to speak righteousness. Selah.
4 You love all devouring words, O deceitful tongue.
5 The Mighty God will likewise destroy you forever; He will take you away, and pluck
you out of your tent, and has rooted you out of the land of the living. Selah.
6 The righteous also shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, saying,
7 Behold, the man who did not make God his strength, but trusted in the abundance of
his riches, and was strong in his wickedness.
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever
9 I will give thanks to You forever, because You have done it; and in the presence of
Your saints I will wait upon Your name, for it is good.
