You know Kat this is one of my favorite passages too and contributed to my constant questioning of the ET belief. There are so many scriptures that show us the truth if only we would really read with the Holy Spirit, an open mind and heart. This scripture holds hope and shows God's true nature and I don't care if some argue that this only applies to Israel because I know that it concerns us ALL.

I agree... more importantly it describes God..

All of these I have posted describe God... AND Since God never changes..

Anyway... some of these I haven't read in so long it is refreshing to read them again.. so I thought I'd post them. If you think of any please post them!

Another of my most favorites in the OT:
Psalm 139:1-6
O Lord, you have searched me
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O Lord.
You hem me in—behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

Not the alien part .. LOL
You aren't enlightened by the fact that God loves even the aliens? I believe when God said he was reconciling all, he meant all.
