Psalms 36. Dixit injustus.
MY heart showeth me the wickedness of the ungodly, * that there
is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For he flattereth himself in his own sight, * until his abominable
sin be found out.
3 The words of his mouth are unrighteous and full of deceit:
* he hath left off to behave himself wisely, and to do good.
4 He imagineth mischief upon his bed, and hath set himself in
no good way; * neither doth he abhor any thing that is evil.
5 Thy mercy, O LORD, reacheth unto
the heavens, * and thy faithfulness unto the clouds.
6 Thy righteousness standeth like the strong mountains: * thy
judgments are like the great deep.
7 Thou, LORD, shalt save both man and beast: how excellent is
thy mercy, O God! * and the children of men shall put their trust
under the shadow of thy wings.
8 They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of thy house;
* and thou shalt give them drink of thy pleasures, as out of
9 For with thee is the well of life; * and in thy light shall
we see light.
10 O continue forth thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee,
* and thy righteousness unto them that are true of heart.
11 O let not the foot of pride come against me; * and let not
the hand of the ungodly cast me down.
12 There are they fallen, all that work wickedness; * they are
cast down, and shall not be able to stand.
