Amplified Bible

Psalm 36

Wickedness of Men and Lovingkindness of God.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord.

1Transgression speaks [like an oracle] to the wicked (godless) [deep] within his heart;
There is no fear (dread) of God before his eyes.

For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes
Thinking that his sinfulness will not be discovered and hated [by God].

The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful;
He has ceased to be wise and to do good.

He plans wrongdoing on his bed;
He sets himself on a path that is not good;
He does not reject or despise evil.


Your lovingkindness and graciousness, O Lord, extend to the skies,
Your faithfulness [reaches] to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the mountains of God,
Your judgments are like the great deep.
O Lord, You preserve man and beast.

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
The children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.

They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You allow them to drink from the river of Your delights.

For with You is the fountain of life [the fountain of life-giving water];
In Your light we see light.

10 
O continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You,
And Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart.
11 
Do not let the foot of the proud [person] overtake me,
And do not let the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 
There those who [are perverse and] do evil have fallen;
They have been thrust down and cannot rise.

詩篇 36

人的邪惡與上帝的美善

耶和華的僕人大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1罪惡在惡人內心深處說話,
他們眼中毫無對上帝的畏懼。
他們自以為是,渾然不知自己的罪,
也不憎惡自己的罪。
他們滿口惡言謊話,
毫無智慧和善行。
他們躺在床上盤算作惡,
執意走罪惡的道路,
無惡不作。
耶和華啊,你的慈愛廣及諸天,
你的信實高達穹蒼。
你的公義穩如高山,
你的判斷深不可測。
耶和華啊,你保護人類,
也保護牲畜。
上帝啊,
你的慈愛無比寶貴!
世人都在你的翅膀下尋求蔭庇。
你讓他們飽享你殿裡的美食,
暢飲你樂河中的水。
因為你是生命的泉源,
在你的光中我們得見光明。

10 求你常施慈愛給認識你的人,
以公義恩待心地正直的人。
11 別讓驕傲人的腳踐踏我,
別讓兇惡人的手驅趕我。
12 看啊!惡人已經摔倒在地,
再也爬不起來。
