Psalm 36

36
How Precious Is Your Steadfast Love
To the choirmaster. Of David, the #See Ps. 18, titleservant of the Lord.
1Transgression speaks to the wicked
deep in his heart;#36:1 Some Hebrew manuscripts, Syriac, Jerome (compare Septuagint); most Hebrew manuscripts in my heart
# Cited Rom. 3:18 there is no fear of God
before his eyes.
2 # Deut. 29:19; [Ps. 10:3; 49:18] For he flatters himself in his own eyes
that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
3The words of his mouth are #[Ps. 12:2] trouble and deceit;
# [Jer. 4:22] he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
4He #Mic. 2:1; [Prov. 4:16] plots #Ps. 10:7 trouble while on his bed;
he sets himself in #Isa. 65:2 a way that is not good;
# [Ps. 97:10] he does not reject evil.
5Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
6 # [Ps. 71:19] Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
# Ps. 92:5; Rom. 11:33 your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you #Ps. 104:14, 15; 145:9, 15, 16; Neh. 9:6save, O Lord.
7 # [Ps. 31:19] How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge #See Ruth 2:12in the shadow of your wings.
8They feast on #Ps. 23:5; 27:4; 65:4; Isa. 25:6; See Jer. 31:12-14 the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from #Ps. 46:4; Rev. 22:1 the river of #Ps. 16:11your delights.
9For with you is #Jer. 2:13; John 4:10, 14; 5:26 the fountain of life;
# John 1:9; Acts 26:18; 1 Pet. 2:9 in your light do we see light.
10Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who #Jer. 22:16; Gal. 4:9; [Ps. 79:6] know you,
and your righteousness to #See Ps. 7:10the upright of heart!
11Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12There #Ps. 94:4 the evildoers lie fallen;
they are thrust down, #See Ps. 1:5unable to rise.
