Psalms - Chapter 36 | New King James Version

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