1Why brag about evil, you hero! #Ps 94:4
God’s faithful love is constant. #Ps 40:10-11|NoBook| 138:2
2Like a sharpened razor,
your tongue devises destruction,
working treachery. #Ps 5:9|NoBook| 50:19|NoBook| 59:7
3You love evil instead of good,
lying instead of speaking truthfully. #Ps 58:3Jr 9:4-5Selah

you treacherous tongue! #Ps 10:7Pr 17:4
5This is why God will bring you down forever.
He will take you, ripping you out of your tent;
He will uproot you from the land of the living. #Ps 27:13Pr 2:22Selah
6The righteous will look on with awe
and will ridicule him: #Jb 22:19-20Ps 37:34
7“Here is the man
who would not make God his refuge,
but trusted in the abundance of his riches,
taking refuge in his destructive behavior.” # Or riches, and grew strong in his evil desire ; lit his destruction #Ps 10:6|NoBook| 49:6Pr 11:28
8But I am like a flourishing olive tree
in the house of God; #Ps 1:3|NoBook| 128:3Jr 11:16
I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever. #Ps 143:8
9I will praise You forever for what You have done.
In the presence of Your faithful people,
I will put my hope in Your name, for it is good. #Ps 30:12|NoBook| 54:6
