Psalms 93



Verse 1

The LORD. Hebrew. Jehovah. App-4.

The LORD reigneth. Three Psalms commence thus (93, 97, 99); they each end with the thought of "holiness" (the last has the word "holy" three times), indicating that, when He reigns, "all will be holy" (Isaiah 23:18. Zechariah 14:20, Zechariah 14:21). This explains the cry of the Zoa (Revelation 4:8), because His judgments will prepare the way for His reign.

clothed . . . girded. Figure of speech Anthropopatheia. App-6.

The world. Hebrew. tebel = The habitable world. Compare 1 Samuel 2:8.

stablished. Aramaean, Septuagint, Syriac, and Vulg, render "firmly fixed".

Verse 3

The floods. Note the Figure of speech Anaphora (App-6), for emphasis, Generally applied to rivers.

Verse 4

noise of many waters. Compare Revelation 1:15; Revelation 14:2; Revelation 19:6.

waves = breakers.

Verse 5

testimonies. Compare Psalms 19:7.

Holiness. Compare Psalms 97:12; Psalms 99:9; and see note on Psalms 93:1, above.
