Psalms 36

To the Overseer. --By a servant of Jehovah, by David. The transgression of the wicked Is affirming within my heart, `Fear of God is not before his eyes, For he made it smooth to himself in his eyes, To find his iniquity to be hated. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit, He ceased to act prudently--to do good. Iniquity he deviseth on his bed, He stationeth himself on a way not good, Evil he doth not refuse.'

O Jehovah, in the heavens is Thy kindness, Thy faithfulness is unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is as mountains of God, Thy judgments are a great deep. Man and beast Thou savest, O Jehovah. How precious is Thy kindness, O God, And the sons of men In the shadow of Thy wings do trust. They are filled from the fatness of Thy house, And the stream of Thy delights Thou dost cause them to drink. For with Thee is a fountain of life, In Thy light we see light. 10 Draw out Thy kindness to those knowing Thee, And Thy righteousness to the upright of heart. 11 Let not a foot of pride meet me, And a hand of the wicked let not move me. 12 There have workers of iniquity fallen, They have been overthrown, And have not been able to arise!
