Psalms 36:6

Context

your fairness like the deepest sea;

you preserve 2  mankind and the animal kingdom. 3 

Psalms 77:19

Context

77:19 You walked through the sea; 4 

you passed through the surging waters, 5 

but left no footprints. 6 

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 “in the sea [was] your way.”

5 tn Heb “and your paths [were] in the mighty waters.”

6 tn Heb “and your footprints were not known.”
