Bible: Psalm 36

Psalm 36 1 

36:1 For the music director; written by the Lord’s servant, David; an oracle. 2 

An evil man is rebellious to the core. 3 

He does not fear God, 4 

36:2 for he is too proud

to recognize and give up his sin. 5 

36:3 The words he speaks are sinful and deceitful;

he does not care about doing what is wise and right. 6 

36:4 He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed;

he is committed to a sinful lifestyle; 7 

he does not reject what is evil. 8 

36:5 O Lord, your loyal love reaches to the sky; 9 

your faithfulness to the clouds. 10 

36:6 Your justice is like the highest mountains, 11 

your fairness like the deepest sea;

you preserve 12  mankind and the animal kingdom. 13 

36:7 How precious 14  is your loyal love, O God!

The human race finds shelter under your wings. 15 

36:8 They are filled with food from your house,

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

36:9 For you are the one who gives

and sustains life. 16 

36:10 Extend 17  your loyal love to your faithful followers, 18 

and vindicate 19  the morally upright! 20 

36:11 Do not let arrogant men overtake me,

or let evil men make me homeless! 21 

36:12 I can see the evildoers! They have fallen! 22 

They have been knocked down and are unable to get up! 23
