Futility of Boastful Wickedness.

1 Why do you 1boast in evil, O mighty man? The 2lovingkindness of God endures all day long. 2 Your tongue devises 3destruction, Like a 4sharp razor, 5O worker of deceit. 3 You 6love evil more than good, 7Falsehood more than speaking what is right. aSelah. 4 You love all words that devour, O 8deceitful tongue. 5 bBut God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and 9tear you away from your tent, And 10uproot you from the 11land of the living. Selah. 6 The righteous will 12see and fear, And will 13laugh at him, saying, 7 "Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge, But 14trusted in the abundance of his riches And 15was strong in chis evil desire." 8 But as for me, I am like a 16green olive tree in the house of God; I 17trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever. 9 I will 18give You thanks forever, because You have done it, And I will wait on Your name, 19for it is good, in the presence of Your godly ones.
