Darby Bible Translation
For the wicked boasteth of his soul's desire, and he blesseth the covetous; he contemneth Jehovah.
World English Bible
For the wicked boasts of his heart's cravings. He blesses the greedy, and condemns Yahweh.
Young's Literal Translation
Because the wicked hath boasted Of the desire of his soul, And a dishonest gainer he hath blessed, He hath despised Jehovah.
Psalm 10:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Boasteth of his heart's desire - Boasts among his fellows how often he has gratified such and such passions, in such and such circumstances. This shows the excess of a depraved and imbruted spirit. He who can boast of his iniquity, is in the broad road to perdition. Should such a one repent and turn to God, it would be equal to any miracle.
Blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth - Or, he blesseth the covetous, he abhorreth the Lord. Those who are like himself he commends, and with them he associates; and they abhor the Lord - they have a mortal hatred against every thing that is holy; and they are under the full influence of that carnal mind which is enmity to the Lord.

Being Made Archbishop of Armagh, He Suffers Many Troubles. Peace Being Made, from Being Archbishop of Armagh He Becomes Bishop of Down.
Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, "He won't call me to account"?
those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches?
Though while they live they count themselves blessed-- and people praise you when you prosper--
How long, LORD, will the wicked, how long will the wicked be jubilant?
They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting.
The wicked will see and be vexed, they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
Do not grant the wicked their desires, LORD; do not let their plans succeed.
