 1-4 Why do you brag of evil, “Big Man”?
      God’s mercy carries the day.
   You scheme catastrophe;
      your tongue cuts razor-sharp,
      artisan in lies.
   You love evil more than good,
      you call black white.
   You love malicious gossip,
      you foul-mouth.

 5 God will tear you limb from limb,
      sweep you up and throw you out,
   Pull you up by the roots
      from the land of life.

 6-7 Good people will watch and
      worship. They’ll laugh in relief:
   “Big Man bet on the wrong horse,
      trusted in big money,
      made his living from catastrophe.”

 8 And I’m an olive tree,
      growing green in God’s house.
   I trusted in the generous mercy
      of God then and now.

 9 I thank you always
      that you went into action.
   And I’ll stay right here,
      your good name my hope,
      in company with your faithful friends.
