Psalm 36

How fantastic is this? The Psalm for this Sunday is Psalm 36. The King James Bible has verses 5-6 as follows:

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.

Which is fair enough and OK and all that – but hardly pant-bustingly zingy!  Whereas – the Message has it as follows:

God’s love is meteoric,
his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
slips through the cracks.

I shall be using the Message version as-is for my Opening Sentences!  Job done!
