Psalm 36 ©

1 The falsehood and mischievous devices of the wicked: 5 the excellency of the divine mercy, righteousness, truth, and lovingkindness. 10 David prayeth God to continue his favour to the good, and to baffle the designs of the wicked.


To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David athe servant of the LORD.

a Ps. 18, title.

THE transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, bthat there is no fear of God before his eyes.


For che flattereth himself in his own eyes, 1until his iniquity be found to be hateful.


The dwords of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he ehath left off to be wise, and to do good.


He fdeviseth 2mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself gin a way that is not good; hhe abhorreth not evil.


Thy imercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.


Thy jrighteousness is like 3the great mountains; thy kjudgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou lpreservest man and beast.


How 4excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men mput their trust under the shadow of thy wings.


They nshall be abundantly 5satisfied with the fatness of othy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.


For pwith thee is the fountain of life: qin thy light shall we see light.


O 6continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.


Let rnot the foot of pride come against me, and slet not the hand of the wicked remove me.


There are tthe workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
