For the leader. By David, the servant of ADONAI: Crime speaks to the wicked. I perceive this in my heart; before his eyes there is no fear of God.
For, the way he sees it, crime makes his life easy that is, until his wrongs are discovered; then, he is hated.
His words are wrong and deceitful; he has stopped being wise and doing good.
He devises trouble as he lies in bed; so set is he on his own bad way that he doesn't hate evil.
ADONAI, in the heavens is your grace; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, your judgments are like the great deep. You save man and beast, ADONAI.
