- [To the chiefe musician,
A Psalme of Dauid,
the seruant of the Lord.]
- The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no feare of God before his eyes.
- For he flatterech himselfe in his owne eyes, vntill his iniquitie be found to be hatefull.
- The words of his mouth are iniquitie and deceit: he hath left off to bee wise, and to doe good.
- Hee deuiseth mischiefe vpon his bed, he setteth himselfe in a way that is not good;
he abhorreth not euill.
- Thy mercie (O Lord) is in the heauens;
and thy faithfulnesse reacheth vnto the cloudes.
- Thy righteousnesse is like the great mountaines;
thy iudgements are a great deepe;
O Lord, thou preseruest man and beast.
- How excellent is thy louing kindnesse, O God!
therefore the children of men put their trust vnder the shadowe of thy wings.
- They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatnesse of thy house: and thou shalt make them drinke of the riuer of thy pleasures.
- For with thee is the fountaine of life: in thy light shall we see light.
- O continue thy louing kindnesse vnto them that know thee;
and thy righteousnesse to the vpright in heart.
- Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remoue me.
- There are the workers of iniquitie fallen: they are cast downe, and shal not be able to rise.
