Your righteousness is unmovable,
just like the mighty mountains.
Your judgments are as full of wisdom
as the oceans are full of water.
Your tender care and kindness leave no one forgotten,
not a man nor even a mouse.
O God, how extravagant is your cherishing love!
All mankind can find a hiding place[a]
under the shadow of your wings.
All may drink of the anointing[b] from the abundance of your house.
All may drink their fill from the delightful springs of Eden.[c]
