Psalm 36

For the music leader. Of the LORD’s servant David.

1 I know the sinful utterance of the wicked:a No fear of God confronts their own eyes, 2 because in their own eyes they are slick with talk about their guilt ever being found out and despised.b 3 The words of their mouths are evil and dishonest. They have stopped being wise and stopped doing good. 4 They plot evil even while resting in bed! They commit themselves to a path that is no good. They don't reject what is evil. 5 But your loyal love, LORD, extends to the skies; your faithfulness reaches the clouds. 6 Your righteousness is like the strongest mountains; your justice is like the deepest sea. LORD, you save both humans and animals. 7 Your faithful love is priceless, God! Humanity finds refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They feast on the bounty of your house; you let them drink from your river of pure joy. 9 Within you is the spring of life. In your light, we see light. 10 Extend your faithful love to those who know you; extend your righteousness to those whose heart is right. 11 Don't let the feet of arrogant people walk all over me; don't let the hands of the wicked drive me off. 12 Look—right there is where the evildoers have fallen, pushed down, unable to get up!
