Reading along with us in Psalm 31-40? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 36 (ESV)

Transgression speaks to the wicked
    deep in his heart;
there is no fear of God
    before his eyes.
For he flatters himself in his own eyes
    that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit;
    he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
He plots trouble while on his bed;
    he sets himself in a way that is not good;
    he does not reject evil.

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
    your judgments are like the great deep;
    man and beast you save, O Lord....Continue Reading

  1. 5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.
    6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
    your judgments are like the great deep;
    man and beast you save, O Lord.❤️

  2. I find this psalm really interesting. It looks almost like a comparison describing transgression, pain, and sin, versus God. Transgression is full of deceit and plots evil against us, but God covers us with his love, and protects us with his righteousness. So when the going gets tough who will you go running to?

  3. Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
    Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast.

    God is mercy, faithfulness, righteousness and judgment.

  4. The juxtaposition (love that word!) between the evil of men and the abounding mercy and love of God is pretty stark here. Set side by side for comparison, it is clear the character of man is different than the character of God . The wording here is so majestic and beautiful it has been set to music in our day as it was in David’s day. And He allows Himself to be known and be a refuge. Both high and low among men find refuge under the shadow of His wings!
