Psalm of David
1 Sin speaks to the ungodly deep within his heart. There is no reverence for God before his eyes.
2 He flatters himself and does not hate or even recognize his sin.
3 The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit and he ceased to be wise and do good.
4 He plans wickedness upon his bed. He walks on a path that is not good. He does not despise evil.
5 Your loving-kindness, O Jehovah, extends to the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God. Your judgments are like great deep water. O Jehovah, you preserve man and beast.
7 How precious is your loving-kindness, O God! And the children of men put their trust in the shadow of your wings.
8 They drink their fill of the abundance of your house. You give them the river of your delights to drink.
9 For with you is the fountain source of life. In your light we see light. (Jeremiah 2:13) (Acts 17:28)
10 O continue your kindness and unchanging love to those who know you and your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Do not let the foot of pride come upon me. Do not let the hand of the ungodly drive me away.
12 The doers of evil have fallen! They have been thrust down and cannot rise.
