Psalm 36

Concerning the Rebelliousness of the Wicked


For the choir director. By the servant of the Lord. By David.

A declaration about the rebellion of the wicked is deep in my heart.[a]

The Arrogance of the Wicked

There is no dread of God before his eyes,
because he flatters himself in his own eyes
    too much to notice his guilt and to hate it.
The words from his mouth are deception and deceit.
He has given up being wise and doing good.
