Psalms 36:1 "The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, That there is no fear of God before his eyes."

This Psalms 36 continues in thought from the Psalms 35. This verse is quite polluted in the translation. What it is saying is actually quoted in Romans 3:18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes." So it should say, "The transgression of the wicked saith within his heart or mind, for there is no fear of God before his eye, for God doesn't exist." That is how the wicked feel about God.

Psalms 36:2 "For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, Until his iniquity be found to be hateful."

He is so prideful that all he can focus on is himself, and this builds until nobody can stand to be around him.

Psalms 36:3 "The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: He hath left off to be wise, and to do good."

He grows so bold in the deception of fooling himself, and takes such risks that he absolutely loses any smarts that he may have had at one time. This is most cases is referring to the Kenite. In time all those around him will see him for the fool that he is.

Psalms 36:4 "He deviseth mischief upon his bed; He setteth himself in a way that is not good; He abhorreth not evil."

All he can think about day and all night long is the mischief that he will do the next day. This kind of person doesn't hate evil, he loves it.

Psalms 36:5 "Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds."

Our Heavenly Father is always there, He watches over us, and knows the intent of our minds. Father is there and faithful to those that trust in Him.

Psalms 36:6 "Thy righteousness is like the great mountains: Thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, Thou preservest man and beast."

"The great mountains", as given here, in the Hebrew manuscripts read "The mountains of El", the mountains of God. God's judgments have to do with God's just decrees that come straight from His Word. You can trust in His Word for it is just and right.

Psalms 36:7 "How excellent is Thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings."

How precious is His loving kindness. This comes straight out of the "Song of Moses". It comes from Deuteronomy 32:11, 12; "As an eagle stirreth up her nest, Fluttereth over her young, Spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, Beareth them on her wings:" [11] "So the Lord alone did lead him, And there was not strange God with him." [12] No matter what happens in this earth age, you do not have to worry and fret. God will take care of all the details of the problems that stand before you.

Psalms 36:8 "They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; And Thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures."

The "river of thy pleasures" refers to that river of Revelation 22:1 "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and and of the Lamb." This is the river of life that God will always share with those that love Him.

Psalms 36:9 "For with Thee is the fountain of life: In Thy light shall we see light."

Now go to Revelation 21:23, concerning the temple of the Lord in the eternity. "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof."

Psalms 36:10 "O continue Thy loving kindness unto them that know Thee; And Thy righteousness to the upright in heart."

Psalms 36:11 "Let not the foot of pride come against me, And let not the hand of the wicked remove me."

You can trust in the Father, for He will not allow harm to come against you.

Psalms 36:12 "There are the workers of iniquity fallen: They are cast down, and shall not be able to rise."

Once Satan is destroyed from within, following the great white throne judgment, there will never again be a wicked on to arise.
