Psalm 36:5-11 Good News Translation (GNT)

The Goodness of God

Lord, your constant love reaches the heavens;
    your faithfulness extends to the skies.
Your righteousness is towering like the mountains;
    your justice is like the depths of the sea.
People and animals are in your care.

How precious, O God, is your constant love!
    We find[a] protection under the shadow of your wings.
We feast on the abundant food you provide;
    you let us drink from the river of your goodness.
You are the source of all life,
    and because of your light we see the light.

10 Continue to love those who know you
    and to do good to those who are righteous.
11 Do not let proud people attack me
    or the wicked make me run away.

Psalm 36:5-11 New International Version (NIV)

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
    your justice like the great deep.
    You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
    People take 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.

10 Continue your love to those who know you,
    your righteousness to the upright in heart.
11 May the foot of the proud not come against me,
    nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.

Psalm 36:5-12 The Message (MSG)

5-6 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.

7-9 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.

10-12 Keep on loving your friends;
    do your work in welcoming hearts.
Don’t let the bullies kick me around,
    the moral midgets slap me down.
Send the upstarts sprawling
    flat on their faces in the mud.

The Message (MSG)
