Psalm 36
International Standard VersionHolman Christian Standard Bible
1An oracle that came to me about the transgressions of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.1For the choir director. A psalm of David, the LORD's servant. An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked person: There is no dread of God before his eyes,
2He flatters himself too much to discover his transgression and hate it.2for in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to discover and hate his sin.
3The words from his mouth are vain and deceptive. He has abandoned behaving wisely and doing good.3The words of his mouth are malicious and deceptive; he has stopped acting wisely and doing good.
4He devises iniquity on his bed and is determined to follow a path that is not good. He does not resist evil.4Even on his bed he makes malicious plans. He sets himself on a path that is not good and does not reject evil.
5Your gracious love, LORD, reaches to the heavens; your truth extends to the skies. 5 LORD, Your faithful love reaches to heaven, Your faithfulness to the clouds.
6Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your justice is like the great depths of the sea. You deliver both people and animals, LORD.6Your righteousness is like the highest mountains; Your judgments, like the deepest sea. LORD, You preserve man and beast.
7How precious is your gracious love, God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of your wings.7God, Your faithful love is so valuable that people take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8They are refreshed from the abundance of your house; You cause them to drink from the river of your pleasures.8They are filled from the abundance of Your house; You let them drink from Your refreshing stream,
9For with you is a fountain of life, and in your light we will see light.9for with You is life's fountain. In Your light we will see light.
10Send forth your gracious love to those who know you, and your righteousness to those who are upright in heart.10Spread Your faithful love over those who know You, and Your righteousness over the upright in heart.
11Do not let the foot of the proud crush me; and do not let the hand of the wicked dissuade me.11Do not let the foot of the arrogant man come near me or the hand of the wicked one drive me away.
12There, those who do evil have fallen; They have been thrown down, and they cannot get up.12There the evildoers fall; they have been thrown down and cannot rise.
