Tehillim (Psalms) 36
1Transgression speaks to the wrong within his heart; Fear of Elohim is not before his eyes.
2For he flatters himself in his own eyes, To find his crookedness to be hated.
3The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise, to do good.
4He plots wickedness on his bed; He sets himself in a way that is not good; He does not despise evil.
5O יהוה, Your loving-commitment is in the heavens, And Your trustworthiness reaches to the clouds.
6Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains; Your right-rulings are a great deep; O יהוה, You save man and beast.
7How precious is Your loving-commitment, O Elohim! And the sons of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
8They are filled from the fatness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
9For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.
10Draw out Your loving-commitment to those who know You, And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11Let not the foot of pride come against me, And the hand of the wrong drive me away.
12There the workers of wickedness have fallen; They have been overthrown And have been unable to rise.
