    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 33:5

    He loveth righteousness - What he delights in himself, he loves to see in his followers.

    The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord - To hear its worthless inhabitants complain, one would think that God dispensed evil, not good. To examine the operation of his hand, every thing is marked with mercy and there is no place where his goodness does not appear. The overflowing kindness of God fills the earth. Even the iniquities of men are rarely a bar to his goodness: he causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends his rain upon the just and the unjust.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 33:5

    He loveth righteousness - See Psalm 11:7.

    And judgment - justice.

    The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord - Margin, "mercy." So the Hebrew. That is, his mercy or goodness is manifest everywhere. Every part of the earth bears witness that he is good.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 33:5

    33:5 Goodness - He not only doth no man wrong, but he is kind and merciful to all men.
