The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {To the chief Musician: an instruction. Of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David came to the house of Ahimelech.} Why boastest thou thyself in evil, thou mighty man? The loving-kindness of God [abideth] continually. 1 Why do you boast of evil, you mighty man? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?
2 Thy tongue deviseth mischievous things, like a sharp razor, practising deceit. 2 Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit.
3 Thou hast loved evil rather than good, lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. 3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. "Selah"

Selah. 5 Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and tear you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. "Selah"

8 But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God: I will confide in the loving-kindness of God for ever and ever. 8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever.
9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done [it]; and I will wait on thy name, before thy godly ones, for it is good. 9 I will praise you forever for what you have done; in your name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your saints.
