Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 To victory, to David, the servant of the Lord. The unjust man said, that he trespass in himself; the dread of God is not before his eyes. (To the victory of David, the servant of the Lord. The wicked man said, My sin, or my trespass, is my concern alone; and so the fear of God is not in his heart/and so reverence for God is not in his heart.) 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For he did guilefully in the sight of God; that his wickedness be found to (be) hatred. (But he did deceitfully before God; until his wickedness was found to be hateful.) 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 The words of his mouth be wickedness and guile; he would not understand to do well. (The words of his mouth be wicked and deceitful; he desireth not to understand, or to do good.) 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 He thought wickedness in his bed; he stood nigh (to) all way(s) (that be) not good; forsooth he hated not malice. 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 Lord, thy mercy is in heaven; and thy truth is unto [the] clouds. (Lord, thy love reacheth up to the heavens; and thy faithfulness up to the clouds.) 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Thy rightfulness is as the hills of God; thy dooms be (as) much depth of waters. Lord, thou shalt save men and beasts; (Thy righteousness is as high as the mountains; thy judgements, or thy just acts, be as deep as the water. Lord, thou shalt save people and beasts;) 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 as thou, God, hast multiplied thy mercy. But the sons of men shall hope in the covering of thy wings. (for thou, God, hast multiplied thy love. And so the sons and daughters of men shall hope for/shall trust in the covering of thy wings.) 7 How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They shall be (ful)filled greatly of the plenty of thine house; and thou shalt give drink to them of the stiff stream of thy liking. (They shall be filled from the rich plenty of thy House; and thou shalt give drink to them out of the flowing stream of thy delights, or of thy goodness.) 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For the well of life is with thee; and in thy light we shall see light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Lord, set forth thy mercy to them that know thee; and thy rightfulness to them that be of rightful heart. (Lord, continue to show thy love to those who know thee; and thy righteousness to those who have an upright heart.) 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 The foot of pride come not to me; and the hand of the sinner move me not. (Let not the foot of pride come against me; nor let the hand of the sinner upset me.) 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There they have fallen down, that work wickedness; they be cast out, and might not stand. (See where those who do evil have fallen; yea, they be thrown down, and be not able to stand up again.) 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
