For the director of music. Of David, the servant of the Lord.
36 Sin speaks to the wicked man in his heart. He has no fear of or respect for God. 2 He thinks too much of himself. He doesn’t see his sin and hate it. 3 His words are wicked lies. He is no longer wise or good. 4 At night he makes evil plans. What he does leads to nothing good. He doesn’t refuse things that are evil.
5 Lord, your love reaches to the heavens. Your loyalty goes to the skies. 6 Your goodness is as high as the mountains. Your justice is as deep as the great ocean. Lord, you protect both men and animals. 7 God, your love is so precious! You protect people as a bird protects her young under her wings. 8 They eat the rich food in your house. You let them drink from your river of pleasure. 9 You are the giver of life. Your light lets us enjoy life.
10 Continue to love those who know you. And continue to do good to those who are good. 11 Don’t let proud people attack me. Don’t let the wicked force me away. 12 Those who do evil have been defeated. They are overwhelmed; they cannot do evil any longer.
