Psalm 36

Psalm 36:5-10 (New International Version)
Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O Lord, you preserve both man and beast.
How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart.

Psalm 36:5-10 (The Message)
God'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.
How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,
To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water.
You're a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.
Keep on loving your friends; do your work in welcoming hearts.

His love is faithful, priceless, as vast as the heavens... meteoric, exquisite, astronomically loyal, a fountain of light.... which is so much larger than we can wrap our heads around.... yet how amazing that nothing is small enough to get lost and escape His notice by slipping through the cracks! There is no one like Him!
