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. 2 For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes Thinking that his sinfulness will not be discovered and hated [by God]. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; He has ceased to be wise and to do good. 4 He plans wrongdoing on his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not reject or despise evil.
5 Your lovingkindness and graciousness, O Lord, extend to the skies, Your faithfulness [reaches] to the clouds. 6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God, Your judgments are like the great deep. O Lord, You preserve man and beast. 7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. 8 They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You allow them to drink from the river of Your delights. 9 For with You is the fountain of life [the fountain of life-giving water]; In Your light we see light.
10 O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You, And Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart. 11 Do not let the foot of the proud [person] overtake me, And do not let the hand of the wicked drive me away. 12 There those who [are perverse and] do evil have fallen; They have been thrust down and cannot rise.
