Why Do You Boast of Evil?1 For the choirmaster. A Maskil of David. After Doeg the Edomite went to Saul and told him, “David has gone to the house of Ahimelech.” Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The loving devotion of God [endures] all day long. 2 Your tongue devises destruction like a sharpened razor, O worker of deceit. 3 You love evil more than good, falsehood more than speaking the truth. Selah 4 You love every word that devours, O deceitful tongue. 5 Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin; He will snatch you up and tear you away from [your] tent; He will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah 6 The righteous will see and fear; they will mock [the evildoer], saying, 7 “Look at the man who did not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his wealth, who strengthened himself by bringing destruction.” 8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in the loving devotion of God forever and ever. 9 I will praise You forever, because You have done it. I will wait on Your name— for it is good— in the presence of Your saints.
