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