Psalms - Chapter 36 | American Standard Version

  • 1. For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of Jehovah. The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, There is no fear of God before his eyes.
  • 2. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, That his iniquity will not be found out and be hated.
  • 3. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: He hath ceased to be wise {cf15i and} to do good.
  • 4. He deviseth iniquity upon his bed; He setteth himself in a way that is not good; He abhorreth not evil.
  • 5. Thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, is in the heavens; Thy faithfulness {cf15i reacheth} unto the skies.
  • 6. Thy righteousness is like the mountains of God; Thy judgments are a great deep: O Jehovah, thou preservest man and beast.
  • 7. How precious is thy lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.
  • 8. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; And thou wilt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
  • 9. For with thee is the fountain of life: In thy light shall we see light.
  • 10. Oh continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee, And thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
  • 11. Let not the foot of pride come against me, And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.
  • 12. There are the workers of iniquity fallen: They are thrust down, and shall not be able to rise.
