To the Overcomer,
A Psalm of David the slave of the LORD.

1The rebellion of the wicked saith to my heart that there is no fear of God before his eyes. 2For he flatters himself in his own eyes until his iniquity is found to be hateful. 3The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit; he has left off to be wise and to do good. 4He devises iniquity upon his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not abhor evil.

5Thy mercy, O LORD, reaches unto the heavens, and thy truth reaches unto the clouds. 6Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God; thy judgments are a great deep; O LORD, thou dost preserve man and beast. 7How excellent is thy mercy, O God! therefore the sons of Adam cover themselves in the shadow of thy wings. 8They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house, and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. 9For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light shall we see light. 10Extend thy mercy unto those that know thee and thy righteousness to the upright in heart. 11Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me. 12There are the workers of iniquity fallen; they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.
