Psalm 36:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 36[a]

Human Wickedness and Divine Providence

For the leader. Of David, the servant of the Lord.


Sin directs the heart of the wicked man;
    his eyes are closed to the fear of God.


  1. Psalm 36 A Psalm with elements of wisdom (Ps 36:2–5), the hymn (Ps 36:6–10), and the lament (Ps 36:11–13). The rule of sin over the wicked (Ps 36:2–5) is contrasted with the rule of divine love and mercy over God’s friends (Ps 36:6–10). The Psalm ends with a prayer that God’s guidance never cease (Ps 36:11–12).
