My heart shows me the wickedness of the ungodly; *
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
For he flatters himself in his own sight, *
until his abominable sin is found out.
The words of his mouth are unrighteous and full of deceit; *
he has left off behaving wisely and doing good.
He imagines mischief upon his bed, and has set himself in no good way; *
neither does he abhor anything that is evil.
Your mercy, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, *
and your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness stands like the strong mountains; your judgments are like the great deep: *
you, Lord, shall save both man and beast.
How excellent is your mercy, O God! *
The children of men shall take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of your house; *
and you shall give them drink from your pleasures as out of a river.
For with you is the well of life; *
and in your light shall we see light.
O continue your loving-kindness to those who know you, *
and your righteousness to those who are true of heart.
O let not the foot of the proud come against me, *
and let not the hand of the ungodly cast me down.
There have they fallen, all those who work wickedness; *
they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
