Psalm 36
International Standard VersionNew Living Translation
1An oracle that came to me about the transgressions of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.1Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all.
2He flatters himself too much to discover his transgression and hate it.2In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.
3The words from his mouth are vain and deceptive. He has abandoned behaving wisely and doing good.3Everything they say is crooked and deceitful. They refuse to act wisely or do good.
4He devises iniquity on his bed and is determined to follow a path that is not good. He does not resist evil.4They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their actions are never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil.
5Your gracious love, LORD, reaches to the heavens; your truth extends to the skies. 5Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond 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 mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O LORD.
7How precious is your gracious love, God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of your wings.7How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter 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.8You feed them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from your river of delights.
9For with you is a fountain of life, and in your light we will see light.9For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.
10Send forth your gracious love to those who know you, and your righteousness to those who are upright in heart.10Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you; give justice to those with honest hearts.
11Do not let the foot of the proud crush me; and do not let the hand of the wicked dissuade me.11Don’t let the proud trample me or the wicked push me around.
12There, those who do evil have fallen; They have been thrown down, and they cannot get up.12Look! Those who do evil have fallen! They are thrown down, never to rise again.
