Psalter 93

Verse 1
The trespass of the wicked man
Most plainly testifies
That fear of God's most holy Name
Is not before his eyes.

Verse 2
He cherishes the empty hope,
Although his sin be great,
It never shall be brought to light
And viewed with righteous hate.

Verse 3
The words he utters with his mouth
Are wickedness and lies;
He keeps himself from doing good,
And ceases to be wise.

Verse 4
While on his bed his thought he gives
To planning wickedness;
He sets himself in evil ways,
He shuns not to transgress.
