How Precious Is Your Steadfast Love

36 To the choirmaster. Of David, the xservant of the Lord.

  Transgression speaks to the wicked

deep in his heart;1

ythere is no fear of God

before his eyes.

  zFor he flatters himself in his own eyes

that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.

  The words of his mouth are atrouble and deceit;

bhe has ceased to act wisely and do good.

  He cplots dtrouble while on his bed;

he sets himself in ea way that is not good;

fhe does not reject evil.

  Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,

your faithfulness to the clouds.

  gYour righteousness is like the mountains of God;

hyour judgments are like the great deep;

man and beast you isave, O Lord.

  jHow precious is your steadfast love, O God!

The children of mankind take refuge kin the shadow of your wings.

  They feast on lthe abundance of your house,

and you give them drink from mthe river of nyour delights.

  For with you is othe fountain of life;

pin your light do we see light.

  10  Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who qknow you,

and your righteousness to rthe upright of heart!

  11  Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,

nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.

  12  There sthe evildoers lie fallen;

they are thrust down, tunable to rise.
