1 Why boastest thou thyself of evil, O mighty man? The mercy of God endureth continually.
2 Thy tongue deviseth destruction; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
3 Thou lovest evil more than good; falsehood rather than speaking righteousness. Selah
4 Thou lovest all devouring words, the deceitful tongue.
5 God will likewise break thee for ever, He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent, 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 stronghold; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.'
8 But as for me, I am like a leafy olive-tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I will give Thee thanks for ever, because Thou hast done it; and I will wait for Thy name, for it is good, in the presence of Thy saints.
