1. To the chief musician; a psalm of instruction of David,
2. When Doeg the Edomite went in and told Saul and said to him, David went unto the house of Abimelech.
3. Why boastest thou thyself in evil, Ο mighty man? The mercy of God [is] all the day.
4. Thy tongue deviseth wickedness, as a sharpened razor, working deceit.
5. Thou hast loved evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking righteousness. Selah.
6. Thou hast loved all words of destruction, Ο tongue of deceit.
7. God also will destroy thee forever; he will lay hold of thee and tear thee away from thy tent, and he will root thee up from the land of the living. Selah.
8. And the righteous shall see, and they shall fear and shall laugh over him.
9. Behold the man1 who setteth not God [as] his strength but trusteth in the multitude of his riches; he is strong in his wickedness.
10. But I [am] like a green olive-tree in the house of God; I have trusted in the mercy of God forever and ever.
11. I will praise thee forever, for thou hast done [it], and I will hope in thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.
