For the choir director; by David, the Lord’s servant.
1 There is an inspired truth about the wicked person who has rebellion in the depths of his heart: He is not terrified of God. 2 He flatters himself and does not hate or even recognize his guilt. 3 The words from his mouth are nothing but trouble and deception. He has stopped doing what is wise and good. 4 He invents trouble while lying on his bed and chooses to go the wrong direction. He does not reject evil.
5 O Lord, your mercy reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. 6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, your judgments like the deep ocean. You save people and animals, O Lord. 7 Your mercy is so precious, O God, that Adam’s descendants take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They are refreshed with the rich foods in your house, and you make them drink from the river of your pleasure. 9 Indeed, the fountain of life is with you. In your light we see light. 10 Continue to show your mercy to those who know you and your righteousness to those whose motives are decent. 11 Do not let the feet of arrogant people step on me or the hands of wicked people push me away. 12 Look at the troublemakers who have fallen. They have been pushed down and are unable to stand up again.
