Bible verse and quote
by Jan Couns
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 36:5 God's mercy with a sinner is only equaled and perhaps outmatched by His patience with the saint. Alan Redpath, 1907- 89 British evangelist, pastor and author
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O Lord, you preserve both man and beast. Psalm 36:6 God is too kind to do anything cruel, too wise to make a mistake, too deep to explain Himself. Charles R. Swindoll, 1934-
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. Psalm 36:7 God is likened to the ‘eagle stirring up her nest, fluttering over her young,’ with tenderness in her fierce eye, and protecting strength in the sweep of her mighty pinion. So God spreads the covert of His wing, strong and tender, beneath which we may all gather ourselves and nestle. Alexander Maclaren, 1826-1910, British Baptist preacher
(Those that trust God) are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house. Psalm 36:8a On the morning, rise to the propitious favor of thy King; expect nothing less than His beneficence; and judge not the composition of His creative affection.
You make (those that trust) drink from the river of Your pleasures. Psalm 36:8b He who has tasted the higher sweetnesses of God will have his heart’s desires for lower delights strangely deadened and cooled. Alexander Maclaren, 1826-1910, British Baptist expository preacher
