Psalms 36

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of Dawid the servant of יהוה.

1 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God (Elohim) before his eyes.

2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit; he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.

4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

5 Your mercy, O יהוה, is in the heavens; and Your faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

6 Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O יהוה, You preservest man and beast.

7 How excellent is Your loving-kindness, O God (Elohim)! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Your house; and You shalt make them drink of the river of Your pleasures.

9 For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light shall we see light.

10 O continue Your lovingkindness unto them that know You; and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.

11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen; they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
