  1 Why do you boast in evil, O mighty one? God's lovingkindness endures continually.

  2 Your tongue devises destruction; It is like a sharpened razor, O worker of deceit.

  3 You have loved evil rather than good, Falsehood rather than speaking righteousness.

  4 You have loved all the devouring words, O deceitful tongue.

  5 God will likewise break you down forever; He will take you and pluck you up from your tent, And uproot you from the land of the living.

  6 And the righteous will see it and fear, And they will laugh at him, saying,

  7 Behold, this is that mighty man Who did not make God his strength, But trusted in the multitude of his riches And strengthened himself in his desire.

  8 But I, like a flourishing olive tree In the house of God, Trust in God's lovingkindness Forever and ever.

  9 I will give You thanks forever, For You have acted; And I will hope in Your name in the presence of Your faithful ones, For it is good.
