1 For the Chief Musician. A contemplation by David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, "David has come to Abimelech's house."Why do you boast of mischief, mighty man?God's loving kindness endures continually.

2 Your tongue plots destruction,like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

3 You love evil more than good,lying rather than speaking the truth.Selah.

4 You love all devouring words,you deceitful tongue.

5 God will likewise destroy you forever.He will take you up, and pluck you out of your tent,and root you out of the land of the living.Selah.

6 The righteous also will see it, and fear,and laugh at him, saying,

7 "Behold, this is the man who did not make God his strength,but trusted in the abundance of his riches,and strengthened himself in his wickedness."

8 But as for me, I am like a green olive tree in God's house.I trust in God's loving kindness forever and ever.

9 I will give you thanks forever, because you have done it.I will hope in your name, for it is good,in the presence of your holy ones.
