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].
