Psalm 36
NASB 1977►► 
Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD.

     1Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart;
            There is no fear of God before his eyes.

     2For it flatters him in his own eyes,
            Concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it.

     3The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;
            He has ceased to be wise and to do good.

     4He plans wickedness upon his bed;
            He sets himself on a path that is not good;
            He does not despise evil.

     5Thy lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
            Thy faithfulness reaches to the skies.

     6Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God;
            Thy judgments are like a great deep.
            O LORD, Thou preservest man and beast.

     7How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God!
            And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.

     8They drink their fill of the abundance of Thy house;
            And Thou dost give them to drink of the river of Thy delights.

     9For with Thee is the fountain of life;
            In Thy light we see light.

     10O continue Thy lovingkindness to those who know Thee,
            And Thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

     11Let not the foot of pride come upon me,
            And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.

     12There the doers of iniquity have fallen;
            They have been thrust down and cannot rise.
