1Why do you boast, O mighty one, of mischief done against the godly? All day long
2you are plotting destruction. Your tongue is like a sharp razor, you worker of treachery.
3You love evil more than good, and lying more than speaking the truth. 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 will see, and fear, and will laugh at the evildoer, saying,
7See the one who would not take refuge in God, but trusted in abundant riches, and sought refuge in wealth!
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 of what you have done. In the presence of the faithful I will proclaim your name, for it is good.
