Psalm 36

For the music director; written by the Lord’s servant, David; an oracle.

1An evil man is rebellious to the core.

He does not fear God,

2for he is too proud

to recognize and give up his sin.

3The words he speaks are sinful and deceitful;

he does not care about doing what is wise and right.

4He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed;

he is committed to a sinful lifestyle;

he does not reject what is evil.

5O Lord, your loyal love reaches to the sky;

your faithfulness to the clouds.

6Your justice is like the highest mountains,

your fairness like the deepest sea;

you preserve mankind and the animal kingdom.

7How precious is your loyal love, O God!

The human race finds shelter under your wings.

8They are filled with food from your house,

and you allow them to drink from the river of your delicacies.

9For you are the one who gives

and sustains life.

10Extend your loyal love to your faithful followers,

and vindicate the morally upright!

11Do not let arrogant men overtake me,

or let evil men make me homeless!

12I can see the evildoers! They have fallen!

They have been knocked down and are unable to get up!

Psalm 35
