Psalms 36:1-4 ESV
(1) To the choirmaster. Of David, the servant of the LORD (Jehovah). Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes. (2) For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. (3) The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good. (4) He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil.

Psalm 36:Introducton-4 NWT
To the director. Of Jehovah’s servant, David. 36 The utterance of transgression to the wicked one is in the midst of his heart; There is no dread of God in front of his eyes. 2 For he has acted too smoothly to himself in his own eyes To find out his error so as to hate [it]. 3 The words of his mouth are hurtfulness and deception; He has ceased to have insight for doing good. 4 Hurtfulness is what he keeps scheming upon his bed. He stations himself on a way that is not good. What is bad he does not reject.

Psalms 36:1-4 GNB
(1) Sin speaks to the wicked deep in their hearts; they reject God and do not have reverence for him. (2) Because they think so highly of themselves, they think that God will not discover their sin and condemn it. (3) Their speech is wicked and full of lies; they no longer do what is wise and good. (4) They make evil plans as they lie in bed; nothing they do is good, and they never reject anything evil.

Psalms 36:1-4 GW
(1) For the choir director; by David, the LORD'S servant. There is an inspired truth about the wicked person who has rebellion in the depths of his heart: He is not terrified of God. (2) He flatters himself and does not hate or even recognize his guilt. (3) The words from his mouth are nothing but trouble and deception. He has stopped doing what is wise and good. (4) He invents trouble while lying on his bed and chooses to go the wrong direction. He does not reject evil.

Psalms 36:1-4 ASV
(1) For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of Jehovah. The transgression of the wicked saith (is revealed) within my heart, There is no fear of God before his eyes. (2) For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, That his iniquity will not be found out and be hated. (3) The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: He hath ceased to be wise and to do good. (4) He deviseth iniquity upon his bed; He setteth himself in a way that is not good; He abhorreth not evil.
