|[To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD.]||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.
|For he flatters himself in his own eyes |
that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
|The words of his mouth are mischief and deceit; |
he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
|He plots mischief while on his bed; |
he sets himself in a way that is not good;
he spurns not evil.
|Thy steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, |
thy faithfulness to the clouds.
|Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God, |
thy judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast thou savest, O LORD.
|How precious is thy steadfast love, O God! |
The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings.
|They feast on the abundance of thy house, |
and thou givest them drink from the river of thy delights.
|For with thee is the fountain of life; |
in thy light do we see light.
|O continue thy steadfast love to those who know thee, |
and thy salvation to the upright of heart!
|Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me, |
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
|There the evil doers lie prostrate, |
they are thrust down, unable to rise.
|<< | Psalms: 36 | >>|
