To the leader. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came to Saul and said to him, “David has come to the house of Ahimelech.” 1

Why do you boast, O mighty one, of mischief done against the godly? b Or generous All day long 2you are plotting destruction. Your tongue is like a sharp razor, you worker of treachery. 3 You love evil more than good, and lying more than speaking the truth. Selah 4 You love all words that devour, O deceitful tongue. 5 But God will break you down forever; he will snatch and tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah 6 The righteous will see, and fear, and will laugh at the evildoer, c Or My sacrifice, O God, saying, 7 “See the one who would not take refuge in God, but trusted in abundant riches, and sought refuge in wealth!” d Cn Compare Syr: Heb the kindness of God

8

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever. 9 I will thank you forever, because of what you have done. In the presence of the faithful I will proclaim e Heb him your name, for it is good.
