Psalms 10:5-7

5 The roads he takes are always safe; your high judgments have no effect on him; he scoffs at all his enemies. 6 He says to himself, “I will never be moved –from generation to generation without disaster.” 7 Cursing, lying, and violence fill his mouth; trouble and malice readily come out of his tongue.

The psalmist is describing the sinner who sees himself above God and his law. Such a person does not know the gift of fear. He does what he wants and fears no consequences. We might think that such a life would be something to be desired. No, it might be an entire life of safe sinning; but it will come to an end. On judgment day, many who have lived such a life will find out that only suffering and destruction await them.
