Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The grieuous estate of the wicked. 5 The excellencie of Gods mercie. 10 Dauid prayeth for fauour to Gods children.
1[To the chiefe musician, A Psalme of Dauid, the seruant of the Lord.] The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no feare of God before his eyes.
2For he flatterech himselfe in his owne eyes, vntill his iniquitie be found to be hatefull.2
3The words of his mouth are iniquitie and deceit: he hath left off to bee wise, and to doe good.
4Hee deuiseth mischiefe vpon his bed, he setteth himselfe in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not euill.4
5Thy mercie (O Lord) is in the heauens; and thy faithfulnesse reacheth vnto the cloudes.5
6Thy righteousnesse is like the great mountaines; thy iudgements are a great deepe; O Lord, thou preseruest man and beast.6
7How excellent is thy louing kindnesse, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust vnder the shadowe of thy wings.7
8They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatnesse of thy house: and thou shalt make them drinke of the riuer of thy pleasures.8
9For with thee is the fountaine of life: in thy light shall we see light.
10O continue thy louing kindnesse vnto them that know thee; and thy righteousnesse to the vpright in heart.10
11Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remoue me.
12There are the workers of iniquitie fallen: they are cast downe, and shal not be able to rise.
