The grievous estate of the wicked.
Psalms 36:1 Unto the end, for the servant of God, David himself. The unjust hath said within himself, that he would sin: there is no fear of God before his eyes. Psalms 36:2 For in his sight he hath done deceitfully, that his iniquity may be found unto hatred. Psalms 36:3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and guile: he would not understand that he might do well. Psalms 36:4 He hath devised iniquity on his bed, he hath set himself on every way that is not good: but evil he hath not hated.
The excellency of God's mercy.
Psalms 36:5 O Lord, thy mercy is in heaven, and thy truth reacheth even to the clouds. Psalms 36:6 Thy justice is as the mountains of God, thy judgments are a great deep. Men and beasts thou wilt preserve, O Lord: Psalms 36:7 O how hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God! But the children of men shall put their trust under the covert of thy wings. Psalms 36:8 They shall be inebriated with the plenty of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the torrent of thy pleasure. Psalms 36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life; and in thy light we shall see light.
David prayeth for favour to God's children.
Psalms 36:10 Extend thy mercy to them that know thee, and thy justice to them that are right in heart. Psalms 36:11 Let not the foot of pride come to me, and let not the hand of the sinner move me. Psalms 36:12 There the workers of iniquity are fallen, they are cast out, and could not stand.
