Psalm 36. Dixit injustus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Seventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. MY heart showeth me the wickedness of the ungodly, *
    that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
  2. For he flattereth himself in his own sight, *
    until his abominable sin be found out.
  3. The words of his mouth are unrighteous and full of deceit: *
    he hath left off to behave himself wisely, and to do good.
  4. He imagineth mischief upon his bed, and hath set himself in no good way; *
    neither doth he abhor any thing that is evil.
  5. Thy mercy, O Lord, reacheth unto the heavens, *
    and thy faithfulness unto the clouds.
  6. Thy righteousness standeth like the strong mountains: *
    thy judgments are like the great deep.
  7. Thou, Lord, shalt save both man and beast: how excellent is thy mercy, O God! *
    and the children of men shall put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
  8. They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of thy house; *
    and thou shalt give them drink of thy pleasures, as out of the river.
  9. For with thee is the well of life; *
    and in thy light shall we see light.
  10. O continue forth thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee, *
    and thy righteousness unto them that are true of heart.
  11. O let not the foot of pride come against me; *
    and let not the hand of the ungodly cast me down.
  12. There are they fallen, all that work wickedness; *
    they are cast down, and shall not be able to stand.
