Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.

1 Transgression speaks to the ungodly within 1his heart;

There is ano fear of God before his eyes.

2 For 1it aflatters him in his own eyes

Concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it.

3 The awords of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;

He has bceased to 1be wise and to do good.

4 He aplans wickedness upon his bed;

He sets himself on a bpath that is not good;

He cdoes not despise evil.

5 Your alovingkindness, O Lord, 1extends to the heavens,

Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

6 Your arighteousness is like the 1mountains of God;

Your bjudgments are like a great deep.

O Lord, You cpreserve man and beast.

7 How aprecious is Your lovingkindness, O God!

And the children of men btake refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

8 They adrink their fill of the 1abundance of Your house;

And You give them to drink of the briver of Your delights.

9 For with You is the afountain of life;

In Your light we see light.

10 O continue Your lovingkindness to athose who know You,

And Your brighteousness to the upright in heart.

11 Let not the foot of pride come upon me,

And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.

12 There the doers of iniquity have fallen;

They have been thrust down and acannot rise.
