Psalm 36:1-4

A David Psalm

1-4The God-rebel tunes in to sedition— all ears, eager to sin.

He has no regard for God,

he stands insolent before him.

He has smooth-talked himself

into believing

That his evil

will never be noticed.

Words gutter from his mouth,

dishwater dirty.

Can't remember when he

did anything decent.

Every time he goes to bed,

he fathers another evil plot.

When he's loose on the streets,

nobody's safe.

He plays with fire

and doesn't care who gets burned.

5-6God's love is meteoric,

his loyalty astronomic,

His purpose titanic,

his verdicts oceanic.

Yet in his largeness

nothing gets lost;

Not a man, not a mouse,

slips through the cracks.
