Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; 1there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
The words of his mouth are 3trouble and deceit; 4he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
He 5plots 6trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in 7a way that is not good; 8he does not reject evil.
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
9Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; 10your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you 11save, O LORD.
12How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge 13in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on 14the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from 15the river of 16your delights.
For with you is 17the fountain of life; 18in your light do we see light.
Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who 19know you, and your righteousness to 20the upright of heart!
Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
There 21the evildoers lie fallen; they are thrust down, 22unable to rise.
