Psalm of David
1 Why do you brag about the evil you have done, O mighty man? The loving kindness of God endures continually!
2 Your tongue makes up wickedness. It is like a sharp razor, you master of deceit.
3 You prefer evil to good. You prefer lying to speaking the truth.
4 You love words that devour, O deceitful tongue.
5 God will destroy you forever. He will remove you from your dwelling place from out of the land of the living.
6 The righteous also sees, and fears, and laughs at him. They say:
7 Here is the man who did not make God his strength refugestronghold. He trusted in the abundance of his riches. He strengthened himself in his wickedness.
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy and loving kindness of God forever and ever.
9 I will thank you forever for what you have done. I will wait in your name, for it is good, in the presence of your holy God-like ones.
