Futility of Boastful Wickedness.

For the choir director. A Maskil F474 of David, when F474 Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, "David has come to the house of Ahimelech."

1 Why do you boast R1574 in evil, O mighty man?

The lovingkindness R1575 of God endures all day long.

2 Your tongue devises destruction, R1576

Like a sharp R1577 razor, O R1578 worker of deceit.

3 You love R1579 evil more than good,

Falsehood R1580 more than speaking what is right. Selah. F475

4 You love all words that devour,

O deceitful R1581 tongue.

5 But F476 God will break you down forever;

He will snatch you up and tear R1582 you away from your tent,

And uproot R1583 you from the land R1584 of the living. Selah.

6 The righteous will see R1585 and fear,

And will laugh R1586 at him, saying,

7 "Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge,

But trusted R1587 in the abundance of his riches

And was R1588 strong in his F477 evil desire."

8 But as for me, I am like a green R1589 olive tree in the house of God;

I trust R1590 in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.

9 I will give R1591 You thanks forever, because You have done it,

And I will wait on Your name, for R1592 it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones.
