Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 I know the sinful utterance of the wicked: No fear of God confronts their own eyes, 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 because in their own eyes they are slick with talk about their guilt ever being found out and despised. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 The words of their mouths are evil and dishonest. They have stopped being wise and stopped doing good. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 They plot evil even while resting in bed! They commit themselves to a path that is no good. They don't reject what is evil. 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 But your loyal love, LORD, extends to the skies; your faithfulness reaches the clouds. 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the strongest mountains; your justice is like the deepest sea. LORD, you save both humans and animals. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 Your faithful love is priceless, God! Humanity finds refuge in the shadow of your wings. 7 How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the bounty of your house; you let them drink from your river of pure joy. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 Within you is the spring of life. In your light, we see light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Extend your faithful love to those who know you; extend your righteousness to those whose heart is right. 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Don't let the feet of arrogant people walk all over me; don't let the hands of the wicked drive me off. 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 Look—right there is where the evildoers have fallen, pushed down, unable to get up! 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
