The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The kindness of Ěl is all day long!
2Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, working deceit.
3You loved evil more than good, Lying more than speaking righteousness. Selah.
4You loved all devouring words, O tongue of deceit.
5Let Ěl also break you down forever, Take you and pluck you out of your tent. And He shall uproot you From the land of the living. Selah.
6And let the righteous see and fear, And laugh at him, saying,
7“See the man who did not make Elohim his strength, But trusted in his many riches, Being strong in his destruction.”
8But I am like a green olive tree In the House of Elohim, I have trusted in the kindness of Elohim Forever and ever.
9I thank You forever, Because You have done it; And in the presence of Your kind ones I wait on Your Name, for it is good.
