Psalm 36. Dixit injustus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Seventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. There is a voice of rebellion deep in the heart of the wicked; *
    there is no fear of God before his eyes.
  2. He flatters himself in his own eyes *
    that his hateful sin will not be found out.
  3. The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful, *
    he has left off acting wisely and doing good.
  4. He thinks up wickedness upon his bed and has set himself in no good way; *
    he does not abhor that which is evil.
  5. Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, *
    and your faithfulness to the clouds.
  6. Your righteousness is like the strong mountains, your justice like the great deep; *
    you save both man and beast, O Lord.
  7. How priceless is your love, O God! *
    your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
  8. They feast upon the abundance of your house; *
    you give them drink from the river of your delights.
  9. For with you is the well of life, *
    and in your light we see light.
  10. Continue your loving-kindness to those who know you, *
    and your favor to those who are true of heart.
  11. Let not the foot of the proud come near me, *
    nor the hand of the wicked push me aside.
  12. See how they are fallen, those who work wickedness! *
    they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.
