Psalms 36 : 1 - 12

Chapter 36

1An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes.
2For he flatters himself in his own eyes, When he finds out his iniquity and when he hates.
3The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good.
4He devises wickedness on his bed; He sets himself in a way that is not good; He does not abhor evil.
5Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
6Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
7How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
8They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
9For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.
10Oh, continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11Let not the foot of pride come against me, And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12There the workers of iniquity have fallen; They have been cast down and are not able to rise.
