chief Musician, Maschil, A Psalm of David
boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the
goodness of God endureth continually.
2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp rasor,
3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather
than to speak righteousness. Selah.
4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful
5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall
take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling
place, and root thee out of the land of the living.
6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall
laugh at him:
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 I am like a green olive tree in the house of
God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast
done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good
before thy saints.
