    Question To whom are you reading your psalms, David?

    I've run into the expression:

    To whom are you reading your psalms, David?


    And we do use the same sentence in Arabic to mean: Whom are you tricking?

    Does the expression mean the same in English?
    Or does it mean: "What you are doing is in vain"?


    Thanks.
