- [To the chiefe musition,
a wyse instruction of Dauid,
when Doeg the Edomite came to Saul and tolde him,
Dauid is come to the house of Achimelek.]
- Why boastest thy self thou tiraunt of mischiefe?
the goodnes of God dayly endureth.
- Thy tongue imagineth wickednes: [and] deceaueth like a sharpe raser.
- Thou hast loued vngratiousnes more then goodnes: and to talke of falshood more then of righteousnes.
- Thou hast loued to speake all wordes that may do hurt: O thou deceiptfull tongue.
- Therfore the Lord wyll destroy thee for euer: he wyll take thee and plucke thee out of thy dwelling, and roote thee out of the lande of the liuing.
- The righteous also shall see this: and they wyll be afraide and laugh hym to scorne.
- [Saying] lo this is the man that put not the Lorde [to be] his strength: but trusted vnto the multitude of his riches, and strengthed him selfe in his wickednesse.
- As for me I am lyke a greene oliue tree in the house of the Lorde: my trust is in the tender mercy of the Lorde for euer and euer.
- I will alway confesse it vnto thee, for that thou hast done it: and I wyll hope in thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saintes.
