To the Chief Musician. Of the Servant of Yahweh—of David.
36 Declareth the transgression of the lawless one within my heart, There is no dread of God before his eyes;
2 For he flattereth himself [too much] in his own eyes, To find his iniquity—to hate [it].
3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit, He hath left off to shew discretion by doing well:
4 Iniquity deviseth he upon his bed,—He taketh his stand in a way not good Wrong doth he not abhor!
5 O Yahweh! in the heavens is thy lovingkindness, Thy faithfulness as far as the fleecy clouds:
6 Thy righteousness is like mighty mountains And thy just decrees are a great resounding deep,—Man and beast thou savest, O Yahweh!
7 How precious thy lovingkindness, O God,—Therefore,the sons of men under the shadow of thy wings seek refuge:
8 They abundantly relish the fatness of thy house,—And out of the full stream of thine own pleasures thou givest them to drink.
9 For with thee is the fountain of life, In thy light we see light.
10 Prolong thy lovingkindness unto them who know thee,—And thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 Let not the foot of pride reach me, Nor the hand of the lawless scare me away.
12 There did the workers of iniquity fall,—Thrust down and not able to rise!
