Human Wickedness and Divine Goodness
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David, the servant of the Lord. Wickedness saith to the wicked man, even in mine heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, while his iniquity is found worthy to be hated. 3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit; he hath left off to understand and to do good. 4 He imagineth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself upon a way, that is not good, and doeth not abhor evil. 5 Thy mercy, O Lord, reacheth unto the heavens, and thy faithfulness unto the clouds. 6 Thy righteousness is like the mighty mountains; thy judgments are like a great deep; thou, Lord, doest save man and beast. 7 How excellent is thy mercy, O God! Therefore the children of men trust under the shadow of thy wings. 8 They shall be satisfied with the fatness of thine house, and thou shalt give them drink out of the river of thy pleasures. 9 For with thee is the well of life, and in thy light shall we see light. 10 Extend thy loving kindness unto them that know thee, and thy righteousness unto them that are upright in heart. 11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked men move me. 12 There they are fallen that work iniquity; they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
