Psalm 36:6 -Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains

NIV Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
KJV Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
NASB Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like a great deep
O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
Psalm 36:6


God's righteousness is like the great mountains. He has made-stable, steadfast, immovable, thoroughly dependable. He can always be depended on to do the thing that is right. This was perfectly manifested at the cross. God's righteousness demands that sin be punished. If we were to be punished for our sins we would perish eternally. This is why God's blessed Son took our sins upon Himself. So unbending is God's righteousness that when He saw our sins on His sinless Son, He poured out the torrents of His judgment upon Him. Now God has a righteous basis upon which He can save ungodly sinners-the penalty has been paid by a worthy Substitute.

God's judgments are like the great deep. This means that His decrees, decisions, thoughts and plans are wonderfully profound, complex, and wise. When contemplating this attribute of God, Paul exclaimed: "Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!" (Rom. 11:33).
