|<< Psalm 36 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
The wicked conceives evil in his heart because the awesomeness of God is not before his eyes.
2Because it is hateful in his eyes to forsake his sins and to hate them.
3The answer of his mouth is disease and deceit and he does not want to do good.
4He conceives disease upon his bed and walks in a way which is not beautiful that he may do evil.
5Lord Jehovah in Heaven, your mercies and your faithfulness are unto the Heaven of Heavens!
6And your righteousness is like the mountains, Oh God, and your judgments like the great abyss!
7How abundant are your compassions, oh, God! The children of men will be sheltered in the shadow of your wings.
8And they will feed from the fatness of your house, and from your sweet torrent you will give them drink.
9Because the fountain of life is with you and it is in your light that we see light.
10Keep your mercies for those near you and your righteousness for the upright of heart.
11Let not the violent foot come upon us and the hand of the wicked will not move us.
12Because all workers of lies fall there and they are overthrown and unable to stand.
