goodness.











Verse 5. - He loveth righteousness and judgment. "Righteousness" is the essential principle of justice; "judgment," the carrying out of the principle in act. God loves both - a further ground for praising him. The earth is full of the goodness (or, loving-kindness) of the Lord (comp. Psalm 119:64). The earth is full, not only of God's glory (Isaiah 6:3) and of his riches (Psalm 104:24), but also of his mercy, or loving-kindness (חסד) - a ground of thankfulness that all will acknowledge.
