Psalm 36 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

For the [music] director. Of David, the servant of Yahweh.

Human Wickedness and God’s Love

1 aAn oracle: the wicked has rebellion in the midst of hisb heart. There is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 For he flatters himself in his eyes, hating to detect his iniquity.c 3 The words of his mouth [are] wickedness and deceit. He has ceased to have insight [and] to do good. 4 He plans sin on his bed. He puts himself on a way [that is] not good. He does not reject evil. 5 O Yahweh, your loyal love [extends] into [the] heavens, your faithfulness unto [the] clouds. 6 Your righteousness [is] {like the mighty mountains},d your judgments [like the] great deep. You save man and beast, O Yahweh. 7 How precious [is] your loyal love, O God, and the children of humankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They are refreshed with the {fullness}e of your house,f and you give them drink [from] the river of your delights. 9 For with you is [the] fountain of life; in your light we see light. 10 Prolong your loyal love to those who know you, and your righteousness to [the] upright of heart. 11 Do not let a foot of pride come against me, nor let a wicked hand make me to wander homeless. 12 There doers of evil have fallen; they are thrust down and not able to rise.
