1: Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God [endureth] continually. 2: Thy tongue deviseth very wickedness, Like a sharp razor, working deceitfully. 3: Thou lovest evil more than good, And lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah 4: Thou lovest all devouring words, thou deceitful tongue. 5: God will likewise destroy thee for ever; He will take thee up, and pluck thee out of thy tent, And root thee out of the land of the living. Selah 6: The righteous also shall see [it], and fear, And shall laugh at him, [saying], 7: Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness. 8: But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God: I trust in the lovingkindness of God for ever and ever. 9: I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it; And I will hope in thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.
