Psalms Chapter 36 - New International Version

1. Psalm 36 For the director of music. Of David the servant of the LORD.

1. An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: [1] There is no fear of God before his eyes.

2. For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.

3. The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.

4. Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.

5. Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

6. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.

7. How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find [2] refuge in the shadow of your wings.

8. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.

9. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

10. Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.

11. May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.

12. See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
