Why do you boast oh mighty man?
Why do you boast all day long?
You're a disgrace to God.
Your tongue plots destruction, it's like a sharpened razor.
Why do you boast (x2)
You who practice deceit.
You love evil rather than good.
Falsehood, rather than speaking the truth.
You love every harmful word, oh deceitful tongue.
Surely God will bring you down to ever lasting ruin.
He will snatch you up and tear you down. Uproot you up from the land of the living.
But I am like the olive tree flourishing within your house. I will trust your unfailing love forever and ever. For what you have done I will always praise you. And In the presence of your faithful people, I will bring hope in your name.
The Righteous will see, as they laugh, saying "Here now is the man who did not make God his Stronghold, but trusted in his wealth and grew strong by destroying others"
I flee from you, you flee from me, but know this.
If you remind me of my past, ill remind you of your future.
