Psalm 36


Psalms 36 serves as a contrasting study between the deceitfulness of sin and the everlasting goodness of God. David opens by shedding light on the workings of a sinful heart, outlining how wickedness deludes and emboldens those who forsake righteousness. However, the psalmist swiftly transitions to a celebration of God's unfailing love, mercy, and righteousness. He marvels at God's providence, extending from the heights of the heavens to the depths of the earth. David emphasizes that it's God's steadfast love that offers refuge, sustenance, and joy, even in a world marred by sin. Psalms 36 presents a duality that every believer faces—the lure of sin and the promise of God's endless love—and underlines the importance of placing one's trust in the latter.

Psalms 36

1  (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David the servant of the LORD.) The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.

2  For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

3  The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.

4  He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.

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

6  Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.

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

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

9  For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

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

11  Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.

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