Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast. (KJV (36:6)
It's not just God's physical powers that are naturalistic—his mind is, too. This is some straight-up simile here.

For the wicked shall be cut off,
For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. (NRSV 37:9)
Who owns the land? God or humans? And are we waiting for God or working for God? Yeah, Psalms raises quite a few questions.

God is our refuge and strength,
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Wait a second—who's making the earth tremble here? We thought that was God's job, but here it sounds like God is the refuge from all that craziness. What gives?
