To the director. Of Jehovah’s servant, David.
36 Transgression speaks to the wicked one deep within his heart;
There is no fear of God before his eyes.+
3 The words of his mouth are hurtful and deceptive;
He shows no insight for doing what is good.
4 He plots hurtful schemes even on his bed.
He is set on a path that is not good;
He does not reject what is bad.
Man and beast you preserve,* O Jehovah.+
7 How precious your loyal love is, O God!+
In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge.+
8 They drink their fill of the rich bounty* of your house,+
And you cause them to drink of the torrent of your delights.+
10 Continue showing your loyal love to those who know you,+
And your righteousness, to the upright in heart.+
11 Do not let the foot of the haughty tread on me
Or the hand of the wicked drive me away.
