Human Wickedness and God’s Love
For the choir director. A psalm of David, the Lord’s servant.
1An oracle within my heart
concerning the transgression of the wicked person:
There is no dread of God before his eyes, #Rm 3:18
2for in his own eyes he flatters himself too much
to discover and hate his sin. #Dt 29:19Ps 10:3|NoBook| 49:18
3The words of his mouth are malicious and deceptive; #Ps 10:7
he has stopped acting wisely and doing good. #Jr 4:22
4Even on his bed he makes malicious plans. #Pr 4:16
He sets himself on a path that is not good
and does not reject evil. #Ps 10:7Is 65:2
5Lord, Your faithful love reaches to heaven,
Your faithfulness to the clouds. #Ps 57:10|NoBook| 103:11|NoBook| 108:4
6Your righteousness is like the highest mountains;
Your judgments, like the deepest sea. #Ps 71:19
Lord, You preserve man and beast. #Ps 104:14-15
7God, Your faithful love is so valuable
that people take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. #Ru 2:12Ps 17:8|NoBook| 57:1|NoBook| 91:4
8They are filled from the abundance of Your house;
You let them drink from Your refreshing stream, #Ps 46:4|NoBook| 65:4Jr 31:12-14
9for with You is life’s fountain. #Jn 4:10
In Your light we will see light. #Jn 1:9Ac 26:18
10Spread Your faithful love over those who know You,
and Your righteousness over the upright in heart. #Pr 11:6Jr 22:16
11Do not let the foot of the arrogant man come near me
or the hand of the wicked one drive me away. #Ps 38:16|NoBook| 119:122
12There the evildoers fall;
they have been thrown down and cannot rise. #Ps 1:5|NoBook| 140:10Is 26:14
