The transgressor speaks from the wickedness in his own heart :
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
For he flatters himself in his own sight :
he hates his iniquity to be found out.
The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit :
he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
He plots mischief as he lies upon his bed :
he has set himself on a path that is not good,
he does not spurn evil.
Your unfailing kindness, O Lord, is in the heavens :
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the strong mountains :
and your justice as the great deep;
you, O Lord, save both man and beast.
How precious, O God, is your enduring kindness :
the children of men shall take refuge
under the shadow of your wings.
They shall be satisfied with the good things of your house :
and you will give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the well of life :
and in your light shall we see light.
O continue your merciful kindness toward those who know you :
and your righteous dealing to those that are true of heart.
Let not the foot of the proud come against me :
nor the hand of the ungodly drive me away.
There are they fallen, those who do evil :
they are thrust down, and shall not rise again.
