The steadfast love of Yahweh (Ps 36:5-36:7)

“Your steadfast love!

Yahweh!

Extends to the heavens!

Your faithfulness extends to the clouds!

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains!

Your judgments are like the great deep!

You save humans and animals alike!

Yahweh!

How precious is your steadfast love!

O God!”

Here is a beautiful expression of the steadfast love of Yahweh that extends to the heavens and the clouds. His righteousness is like the highest mountain, while his judgments are like the deepest part of the sea. Yahweh saves humans and animals because of his steadfast love. Yahweh is the great God. The idea of the precious steadfast love of God is a common theme of these psalms.
