Psalms 36:6

Context

36:6 Your justice is like the highest mountains, 1 

your fairness like the deepest sea;

you preserve 2  mankind and the animal kingdom. 3 

Psalms 80:10

Context

80:10 The mountains were covered by its shadow,

the highest cedars 4  by its branches.

1 tn Heb “mountains of God.” The divine name אֵל (’el, “God”) is here used in an idiomatic manner to indicate the superlative.

2 tn Or “deliver.”

3 sn God’s justice/fairness is firm and reliable like the highest mountains and as abundant as the water in the deepest sea. The psalmist uses a legal metaphor to describe God’s preservation of his creation. Like a just judge who vindicates the innocent, God protects his creation from destructive forces.

4 tn Heb “cedars of God.” The divine name אֵל (’al, “God”) is here used in an idiomatic manner to indicate the superlative.
