36:1 (To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David the servant of the LORD.) The transgression of the wicked saith a within my heart, [that there is] no fear of God before his eyes.

    (a) I see evidently by his deeds, that sin pushes forward the reprobate from wickedness to wickedness, even though he goes about to cover his impiety.
36:2 For he b flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
    (b) Though all others detest his vile sin, yet he himself sees it not.
36:3 The words of his mouth [are] iniquity and c deceit: he hath left off to be wise, [and] to do good.
    (c) The reprobates mock wholesome doctrine, and put no difference between good and evil.
36:4 He d deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.
    (d) By describing at large the nature of the reprobate, he admonishes the godly to beware of these vices.
36:5 Thy e mercy, O LORD, [is] in the heavens; [and] thy faithfulness [reacheth] unto the clouds.
    (e) Though wickedness seems to overflow all the world, yet by your heavenly providence you govern heaven and earth.
36:6 Thy righteousness [is] like the great mountains; thy judgments [are] a great f deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
    (f) The depth of your providence governs all things, and disposes them, even though the wicked seem to overwhelm the world.

36:8 They shall be abundantly g satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

    (g) Only God's children have enough of all things both concerning this life and the life to come.
36:10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that h know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
    (h) He shows who God's children are, that is, they who know him, and live their lives uprightly.
36:11 Let not the i foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
    (i) Let not the proud advance himself against me, or the power of the wicked drive me away.
36:12 k There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
    (k) That is, in their pride in which they flatter themselves.
