Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.
36 Transgression speaks [like an oracle] to the wicked (godless) [deep] within his heart;
There is no fear (dread) of God before his eyes.(A)
For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes
Thinking that his sinfulness will not be discovered and hated [by God].
New International Version
For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.
2 In their own eyes they flatter themselves
too much to detect or hate their sin.(D)
