To the Chief Musician. A lesson of instruction of David: when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said to him, that David had come into the house of Abimelech
1 Why dost thou glory in thy wickedness, O mighty man? The goodness of God continueth daily.
2 Thy tongue reckoneth up mischiefs, Like a razor [that is] sharp working deceitfully.
3 Thou lovest wickedness more than goodness; Falsehood more than to speak righteousness. Selah.
4 Thou lovest all words of deceit, O thou tongue of guilefulness!
5 Likewise God shall destroy thee for ever: He shall lay hold on thee and pluck thee out of thy tabernacle, And root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
6 See it also shall the righteous ones, and shall fear, And at him they shall laugh.
7 Behold! the man who made not God his strength; And trusted in the abundance of his riches, And was strong in his wickedness.
8 But as for me I shall be like an olive-tree [that is] green in the house of God: I have trusted in the goodness of God for ever and ever.
9 I will celebrate thee for ever, because thou hast done [it:] I will wait on thy name, For it is good in the presence of thy meek ones.
