Psalm 36. Dixit injustus.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Seventh Day - Morning Prayer.
- There is a voice of rebellion deep in the heart of the wicked; *
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
- He flatters himself in his own eyes *
that his hateful sin will not be found out.
- The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful, *
he has left off acting wisely and doing good.
- He thinks up wickedness upon his bed and has set himself in no good way; *
he does not abhor that which is evil.
- Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, *
and your faithfulness to the clouds.
- Your righteousness is like the strong mountains, your justice like the great deep; *
you save both man and beast, O Lord.
- How priceless is your love, O God! *
your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
- They feast upon the abundance of your house; *
you give them drink from the river of your delights.
- For with you is the well of life, *
and in your light we see light.
- Continue your loving-kindness to those who know you, *
and your favor to those who are true of heart.
- Let not the foot of the proud come near me, *
nor the hand of the wicked push me aside.
- See how they are fallen, those who work wickedness! *
they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.
