For the Chief Musician. Maschil of David: when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech.

1Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the mercy of God endurethcontinually.

2Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

3Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness.

Selah

4Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

5God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent, and root thee out of the land of the living.

Selah

6The righteous also shall see it, and fear, and shall laugh at him, saying,

7Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

8But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

9I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.
