Psalms 36:4

NET ©

He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed; he is committed to a sinful lifestyle; he does not reject what is evil.

NIV ©

Even on his bed he plots evil; he commits himself to a sinful course and does not reject what is wrong.

NASB ©

He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.

NLT ©

They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots. Their course of action is never good. They make no attempt to turn from evil.

MSG ©

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.

BBE ©

He gives thought to evil on his bed; he takes a way which is not good; he is not a hater of evil.

NRSV ©

They plot mischief while on their beds; they are set on a way that is not good; they do not reject evil.

NKJV ©

He devises wickedness on his bed; He sets himself in a way that is not good; He does not abhor evil.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “he takes a stand in a way [that is] not good.” The word “way” here refers metaphorically to behavior or life style.

tn The three imperfect verbal forms in v. 4 highlight the characteristic behavior of the typical evildoer.
