The grievous estate of the wicked.
Psalms 36:1 To the Overseer.By a servant of Jehovah, by David. The transgression of the wicked Is affirming within my heart, 'Fear of God is not before his eyes, Psalms 36:2 For he made [it] smooth to himself in his eyes, To find his iniquity to be hated. Psalms 36:3 The words of his mouth [are] iniquity and deceit, He ceased to act prudentlyto do good. Psalms 36:4 Iniquity he deviseth on his bed, He stationeth himself on a way not good, Evil he doth not refuse.'
The excellency of God's mercy.
Psalms 36:5 O Jehovah, in the heavens [is] Thy kindness, Thy faithfulness [is] unto the clouds. Psalms 36:6 Thy righteousness [is] as mountains of God, Thy judgments [are] a great deep. Man and beast Thou savest, O Jehovah. Psalms 36:7 How precious [is] Thy kindness, O God, And the sons of men In the shadow of Thy wings do trust. Psalms 36:8 They are filled from the fatness of Thy house, And the stream of Thy delights Thou dost cause them to drink. Psalms 36:9 For with Thee [is] a fountain of life, In Thy light we see light.
David prayeth for favour to God's children.
Psalms 36:10 Draw out Thy kindness to those knowing Thee, And Thy righteousness to the upright of heart. Psalms 36:11 Let not a foot of pride meet me, And a hand of the wicked let not move me. Psalms 36:12 There have workers of iniquity fallen, They have been overthrown, And have not been able to arise!
