Psalms 521 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. 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, ▼ O thou deceitful tongue. ▼
▼ 1) Or, And the deceitful tongue5 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 ▼
▼ 1) Or break thee down6 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or stronghold8 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.
