I have a message from God in my heart

concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:b s

There is no feart of God

before their eyes.u

In their own eyes they flatter themselves

too much to detect or hate their sin.v

The words of their mouthsw are wicked and deceitful;x

they fail to act wiselyy or do good.z

Even on their beds they plot evil;a

they commit themselves to a sinful courseb

and do not reject what is wrong.c

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,

your faithfulnessd to the skies.e

Your righteousnessf is like the highest mountains,g

your justice like the great deep.h

You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.i

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!j

People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.k

They feast on the abundance of your house;l

you give them drink from your riverm of delights.n

For with you is the fountain of life;o

in your lightp we see light.

10 Continue your loveq to those who know you,r

your righteousness to the upright in heart.s

11 May the foot of the proud not come against me,

nor the hand of the wickedt drive me away.

12 See how the evildoers lie fallen—

thrown down, not able to rise!u
