The Steadfast Love of God Endures

To the choirmaster. A Maskil of David, when Doeg, the Edomite, came and told Saul, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”

1Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?

The steadfast love of God endures all the day.

2Your tongue plots destruction,

like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.

3You love evil more than good,

and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah

4You love all words that devour,

O deceitful tongue.

5But God will break you down forever;

he will snatch and tear you from your tent;

he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah

6The righteous shall see and fear,

and shall laugh at him, saying,

7“See the man who would not make

God his refuge,

but trusted in the abundance of his riches

and sought refuge in his own destruction!”

8But I am like a green olive tree

in the house of God.

I trust in the steadfast love of God

forever and ever.

9I will thank you forever,

because you have done it.

I will wait for your name, for it is good,

in the presence of the godly.
