Psalm 36 GNT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Sin speaks to the wicked deep in their hearts; they reject God and do not have reverence for him. 1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 Because they think so highly of themselves, they think that God will not discover their sin and condemn it. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.
3 Their speech is wicked and full of lies; they no longer do what is wise and good. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4 They make evil plans as they lie in bed; nothing they do is good, and they never reject anything evil. 4 Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.
5 Lord, your constant love reaches the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the skies. 5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is towering like the mountains; your justice is like the depths of the sea. People and animals are in your care. 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
7 How precious, O God, is your constant love! We find protection under the shadow of your wings. 7 How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 We feast on the abundant food you provide; you let us drink from the river of your goodness. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 You are the source of all life, and because of your light we see the light. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
10 Continue to love those who know you and to do good to those who are righteous. 10 Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Do not let proud people attack me or the wicked make me run away. 11 May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 See where evil people have fallen. There they lie, unable to rise. 12 See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
