1For the music director: a contemplative song of David,
2when Doeg the Edomite came and reported to Saul telling him, “David went to Ahimelech’s house.”
3Why do you brag about evil, mighty man? God’s lovingkindness is every day.
4Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceit.
5You love evil instead of good, lying rather than speaking right. Selah
6You love only devouring words— treacherous tongue!
7God will pull you down forever, and snatch you, rip you out of your tent, and uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
8Then the righteous will see and fear, and laugh at him:
9“Here is the man who did not make God his stronghold. Instead he trusted in his great riches— and was strong in his evil desire.”
10But I—I am like an olive tree flourishing in the House of God. I trust in God’s lovingkindness forever and ever.
11I will praise You forever for what You have done. I will hope in Your Name, for it is good, in the presence of Your kedoshim.
