1 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. 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For, the way he sees it, crime makes his life easy that is, until his wrongs are discovered; then, he is hated. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 His words are wrong and deceitful; he has stopped being wise and doing good. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 He devises trouble as he lies in bed; so set is he on his own bad way that he doesn't hate evil. 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 ADONAI, in the heavens is your grace; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, your judgments are like the great deep. You save man and beast, ADONAI. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 How precious, God, is your grace! People take 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 rich bounty of your house, and you have them drink from the stream of your delights. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Continue your grace to those who know you and your righteousness to the upright in heart. 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Don't let the foot of the proud tread on me or the hands of the wicked drive me away. 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There they lie fallen, those evildoers, flung down and unable to rise. 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
