Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.

1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.
Transgression speaks to the ungodly within (a)his heart;
There is (A)no fear of God before his eyes.
For (b)it (B)flatters him in his own eyes
Concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it.
The (C)words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit;
He has (D)ceased to (c)be wise and to do good.
He (E)plans wickedness upon his bed;
He sets himself on a (F)path that is not good;
He (G)does not despise evil.


a. Psalm 36:1: ['Another reading is ', my heart]
b. Psalm 36:2: ['Or ', he flatters himself]
c. Psalm 36:3: ['Or ', understand to do good]
