Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Why do you boast, great one, of your evil? God's faithfulness is eternal. 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 You make plans to ruin others; your tongue is like a sharp razor. You are always inventing lies. 2 Your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit.
3 You love evil more than good and falsehood more than truth. 3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. "Selah"

7 "Look, here is someone who did not depend on God for safety, but trusted instead in great wealth and looked for security in being wicked." 7 "Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!"
8 But I am like an olive tree growing in the house of God; I trust in his constant love forever 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 always thank you, God, for what you have done; in the presence of your people I will proclaim that you are 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.
