How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
King James Bible
How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
American Standard Version
How precious is thy lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.
Young's Literal Translation
How precious is Thy kindness, O God, And the sons of men In the shadow of Thy wings do trust.
Psalm 36:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
How excellent is thy loving-kindness - He asks the question in the way of admiration; but expects no answer from angels or men. It is indescribably excellent, abundant, and free; and, "therefore, the children of Adam put their trust under the shadow of thy wings." They trust in thy good providence for the supply of their bodies; they trust in thy mercy for the salvation of their souls. These, speaking after the figure, are the two wings of the Divine goodness, under which the children of men take refuge. The allusion may be to the wings of the cherubim, above the mercy-seat.
