Psalm 36
Christian Standard BibleNET Bible
1An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked person: Dread of God has no effect on him.1For the music director; written by the LORD's servant, David; an oracle. An evil man is rebellious to the core. He does not fear God,
2For with his flattering opinion of himself, he does not discover and hate his iniquity.2for he is too proud to recognize and give up his sin.
3The words from his mouth are malicious and deceptive; he has stopped acting wisely and doing good.3The words he speaks are sinful and deceitful; he does not care about doing what is wise and right.
4Even on his bed he makes malicious plans. He sets himself on a path that is not good, and he does not reject evil.4He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed; he is committed to a sinful lifestyle; he does not reject what is evil.
5LORD, your faithful love reaches to heaven, your faithfulness to the clouds.5O LORD, your loyal love reaches to the sky; your faithfulness to the clouds.
6Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your judgments like the deepest sea. LORD, you preserve people and animals.6Your justice is like the highest mountains, your fairness like the deepest sea; you preserve mankind and the animal kingdom.
7How priceless your faithful love is, God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.7How precious is your loyal love, O God! The human race finds shelter under your wings.
8They are filled from the abundance of your house. You let them drink from your refreshing stream.8They are filled with food from your house, and you allow them to drink from the river of your delicacies.
9For the wellspring of life is with you. By means of your light we see light.9For you are the one who gives and sustains life.
10Spread your faithful love over those who know you, and your righteousness over the upright in heart.10Extend your loyal love to your faithful followers, and vindicate the morally upright!
11Do not let the foot of the arrogant come near me or the hand of the wicked drive me away.11Do not let arrogant men overtake me, or let evil men make me homeless!
12There! The evildoers have fallen. They have been thrown down and cannot rise.12I can see the evildoers! They have fallen! They have been knocked down and are unable to get up!
