1 For the music director; written by the Lord's servant, David; an oracle. An evil man is rebellious to the core. He does not fear God, 2 for he is too proud to recognize and give up his sin. 3 The words he speaks are sinful and deceitful; he does not care about doing what is wise and right. 4 He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed; he is committed to a sinful lifestyle; he does not reject what is evil.
5 O Lord, your loyal love reaches to the sky; your faithfulness to the clouds. 6 Your justice is like the highest mountains, your fairness like the deepest sea; you preserve mankind and the animal kingdom. 7 How precious is your loyal love, O God! The human race finds shelter under your wings. 8 They are filled with food from your house, and you allow them to drink from the river of your delicacies. 9 For you are the one who gives and sustains life.
