Psalm 36

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David, the servant of Jehovah.
1 The transgression of the wicked declares within my heart: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For he flatters himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity and hate is found.
3 The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; he has left off acting wisely and doing good.
4 He devises wickedness on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not despise evil.
5 Your mercy, O Jehovah, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
6 Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O Jehovah, You deliver man and beast.
7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the sons of men take refuge under the shadow of Your wings.
8 They shall be satisfied with the fatness of Your house; and You shall make them drink of the river of Your pleasures.
9 For with You is the Fountain of Life; in Your light we shall see light.
10 O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked cause me to wander.
12 There the doers of wickedness have fallen; they have been cast down, and are not able to rise.
