3The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good.3The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil.4He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.
5Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.5Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD.6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep. O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
7How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.7How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.8They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
9For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.9For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.
10Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your righteousness to the upright of heart!10O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.11Let not the foot of pride come upon me, And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12There the evildoers lie fallen; they are thrust down, unable to rise.12There the doers of iniquity have fallen; They have been thrust down and cannot rise.
