36 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD.] לַמְנַצֵּחַ לְעֶבֶד־יְהוָה לְדָוִד׃ Wickedness of the Sinner & God's Goodness. Psalm 36(v35)
Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart;
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
נְאֻם־פֶּשַׁע לָרָשָׁע בְּקֶרֶב לִבִּי אֵין־פַּחַד אֱלֹהִים לְנֶגֶד עֵינָיו׃  
For he flatters himself in his own eyes
that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
כִּי־הֶחֱלִיק אֵלָיו בְּעֵינָיו לִמְצֹא עֲוֹנֹו לִשְׂנֹא׃  
The words of his mouth are mischief and deceit;
he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
דִּבְרֵי־פִיו אָוֶן וּמִרְמָה חָדַל לְהַשְׂכִּיל לְהֵיטִיב׃  
He plots mischief while on his bed;
he sets himself in a way that is not good;
he spurns not evil.
אָוֶן יַחְשֹׁב עַל־מִשְׁכָּבֹו
יִתְיַצֵּב עַל־דֶּרֶךְ לֹא־טֹוב רָע לֹא יִמְאָס׃
 
Thy steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
thy faithfulness to the clouds.
יְהוָה בְּהַשָּׁמַיִם חַסְדֶּךָ אֱמוּנָתְךָ עַד־שְׁחָקִים׃  
Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God,
thy judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast thou savest, O LORD.
צִדְקָתְכָ כְּהַרְרֵי־אֵל מִשְׁפָּטֶךָ תְּהֹום רַבָּה
אָדָם־וּבְהֵמָה תֹושִׁיעַ יְהוָה׃
 
How precious is thy steadfast love, O God!
The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings.
מַה־יָּקָר חַסְדְּךָ
אֱלֹהִים וּבְנֵי אָדָם בְּצֵל כְּנָפֶיךָ יֶחֱסָיוּן׃
 
They feast on the abundance of thy house,
and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights.
יִרְוְיֻן מִדֶּשֶׁן בֵּיתֶךָ וְנַחַל עֲדָנֶיךָ תַשְׁקֵם׃  
For with thee is the fountain of life;
in thy light do we see light.
כִּי־עִמְּךָ מְקֹור חַיִּים בְּאֹורְךָ נִרְאֶה־אֹור׃  
O continue thy steadfast love to those who know thee,
and thy salvation to the upright of heart!
מְשֹׁךְ חַסְדְּךָ לְיֹדְעֶיךָ וְצִדְקָתְךָ לְיִשְׁרֵי־לֵב׃  
Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
אַל־תְּבֹואֵנִי רֶגֶל גַּאֲוָה וְיַד־רְשָׁעִים אַל־תְּנִדֵנִי׃  
There the evil doers lie prostrate,
they are thrust down, unable to rise.
שָׁם נָפְלוּ פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן דֹּחוּ וְלֹא־יָכְלוּ קוּם׃  
      << | Psalms: 36 | >>
