Psalm 36:1-3 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

36 (0) For the leader. By David, the servant of Adonai:

(1) Crime speaks to the wicked.
I perceive this in my heart;
before his eyes there is no fear
of God.
(2) For, the way he sees it,
crime makes his life easy —
that is, until his wrongs are discovered;
then, he is hated.

Psalm 36:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 36[a]

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord.

I have a message from God in my heart
    concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:[b]
There is no fear of God
    before their eyes.

In their own eyes they flatter themselves
    too much to detect or hate their sin.
The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
    they fail to act wisely or do good.
