1 Why boastest thou thyself in thy
wickedness, O man of power? the loving-
kindness of God endureth daily.
2 Thy tongue imagineth mischief, and is like
a sharp razor, that cutteth deceitfully.
3 Thou dost love evil more than good, and
lies more than to speak the truth. Selah.
4 Thou lovest all words that may destroy: O
5 So shall God destroy thee forever: he shall
take thee and pluck thee out of thy tabernacle, 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 Behold the man that took not God for his
strength, but trusteth unto the multitude of his
riches, and put his strength in his malice.
8 But I shall be like a green olive tree in the house
of God: for I trusted in the mercy of God forever
9 I will always praise thee, for that thou hast
done this, and I will hope in thy name, because it
is good before thy Saints.
