Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- An instruction, by David, in the coming in of Doeg the Edomite, and he declareth to Saul, and saith to him, `David came in unto the house of Ahimelech.' What, boasteth thou in evil, O mighty one? The kindness of God [is] all the day. 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 Mischiefs doth thy tongue devise, Like a sharp razor, working 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, than speaking righteousness. Selah. 3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. "Selah"
4 Thou hast loved all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. 4 You love every harmful word, O you deceitful tongue!
5 Also -- God doth break thee down for ever, Taketh thee, and pulleth thee out of the tent, And He hath uprooted thee Out of the land of the living. 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"
6 And the righteous see, And fear, and laugh at him. 6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at him, saying,
7 `Lo, the man who maketh not God his strong place, And trusteth in the abundance of his riches, He is strong in his mischiefs.' 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 And I, as a green olive in the house of God, I have trusted in the kindness of God, To the age and for 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 thank Thee to the age, because Thou hast done [it], And I wait [on] Thy name for [it is] good before Thy saints! 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.
