|<< Psalm 36 >>|
American King James Version
There is No Fear of God Before his Eyes
1The transgression of the wicked said within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2For he flatters himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
3The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he has left off to be wise, and to do good.
4He devises mischief on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he abhors not evil.
5Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
6Your righteousness is like the great mountains; your judgments are a great deep: O LORD, you preserve man and beast.
7How excellent is your loving kindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings.
8They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of your house; and you shall make them drink of the river of your pleasures.
9For with you is the fountain of life: in your light shall we see light.
10O continue your loving kindness to them that know you; and your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
12There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
