Psalm 36 - Perspectives of the wicked and the righteous


How wicked people get that way
Comparing the wonders of nature to praise the attributes of the Lord
The Lord will do wonderful things for people who trust in Him
Asking the Lord to continue His goodness to His people, and to keep me from the wicked
Then the sinners will never recover


He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.

We don't merely need to abstain from loving evil. More than that: even, if we do not abhor evil, that is a characteristic of the wicked.


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

We shouldn't deceive ourselves to think that there is something desirable about wickedness. When I'm tempted, I'll remind myself that the abundant satisfaction and the river of pleasures are from the Lord and trusting in Him.
