1 To victory, the psalm of David, when Doeg the Idumaean came, and told to Saul, and said to him, David came into the house of Ahimelech. What hast thou glory in malice; which art mighty in wickedness?
2All day thy tongue thought unright-fulness; as a sharp razor thou hast done guile [or treachery].
3Thou lovedest malice more than benignity; and wickedness more than to speak equity.
4Thou lovedest all words of casting down; with a guileful [or treacherous] tongue.
5Therefore God shall destroy thee into the end, he shall draw thee out by the root, and he shall make thee to pass away from thy tabernacle; and thy root from the land of living men.
6Just [or Rightwise] men shall see, and shall dread; and they shall laugh on him,
7and they shall say, Lo! the man that setted [or put] not God his helper. But he hoped in the multitude of his riches; and had mastery in his vanity.
8Forsooth I, as a fruitful olive tree in the house of God; hoped in the mercy of God without end, and into the world of world.
9I shall acknowledge to thee into the world, for thou hast done mercy to me; and I shall abide thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saints.
