Human Wickedness and God’s Love
For the choir director. Of David, the Lord’s servant.
1An oracle within my heart
concerning the transgression of the wicked person:
Dread of God has no effect on him.36:1 Lit There is no dread of God in front of his eyes36:1 Rm 3:18
2For with his flattering opinion of himself,
he has stopped acting wisely and doing good.36:3 Jr 4:22
He sets himself on a path that is not good,
5 Lord, your faithful love reaches to heaven,
6Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your judgments like the deepest sea.36:6 Ps 71:19
Lord, you preserve people and animals.36:6 Ps 104:14–15
7How priceless your faithful love is, God!
8They are filled from the abundance of your house.
10Spread your faithful love over those who know you,
11Do not let the foot of the arrogant come near me
12There! The evildoers have fallen.
