Psalms 36

For the end, A Psalm, by David the servant of the Lord.

1 The transgressor, that he may sin, says within himself, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. 2For he has dealt craftily before him, to discover his iniquity and hate it. 3The words of his mouth are transgression and deceit; he is not inclined to understand how to do good. 4He devises iniquity on his bed; he gives himself to every evil way; and does not abhor evil. 5O Lord, Your mercy is in the heavens; and Your truth reaches to the clouds. 6Your righteousness is as the mountains of God, Your judgments are as a great deep; O Lord, You will preserve men and beasts. 7How have You multiplied Your mercy, O God! So the children of men shall trust in the shelter of Your wings. 8They shall be fully satisfied with the fatness of Your house; and You shall cause them to drink of the full stream of Your delights. 9For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we shall see light. 10Extend Your mercy to them that know You; and Your righteousness to the upright in heart. 11Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of sinners move me. 12There the workers of iniquity have fallen; they are cast out, and shall not be able to stand.
