1For the choir director. [A Psalm] of David the servant of the LORD.
Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart;
There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2For it flatters him in his [own] eyes
Concerning the discovery of his iniquity [and] the hatred [of it].
3The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;
He has ceased to be wise [and] to do good.
4He plans wickedness upon his bed;
He sets himself on a path that is not good;
He does not despise evil.
5Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
Your faithfulness [reaches] to the skies.
6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are [like] a great deep.
O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
7How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
9For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.
10O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You,
And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11Let not the foot of pride come upon me,
And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12There the doers of iniquity have fallen;
They have been thrust down and cannot rise.
