Futility of Boastful Wickedness.
For the choir director. A
Possibly Contemplative, or Didactic, or Skillful PsalmMaskil of David,
1 Sam 22:9when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.”1 Why do you c boast in evil, O mighty man?
The d lovingkindness of God endures all day long.
2 Your tongue devises e destruction,
Like a f sharp razor g O worker of deceit.
3 You h love evil more than good,
i Falsehood more than speaking what is right. ▼
▼ Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
4 You love all words that devour,
O k deceitful tongue.
▼ Or AlsoBut God will break you down forever;
He will snatch you up and m tear you away from your tent,
And n uproot you from the o land of the living. Selah.
6 The righteous will p see and fear,
And will q laugh at him, saying,
7 “Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge,
But r trusted in the abundance of his riches
And s was strong in ▼
▼ Or his destructionhis evil desire.”
8 But as for me, I am like a u green olive tree in the house of God;
I v trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever.
9 I will w give You thanks forever, because You have done it,
And I will wait on Your name x for it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones.
