Psalms 98:7

 

 

Let the sea roar and all it contains, The world and those who dwell in it.

Adam Clarke Commentary

Let the sea roar - These are either fine poetic images; or, if we take them as referring to the promulgation of the Gospel, by the sea all maritime countries and commercial nations may be intended.

Coffman's Commentaries on the Bible

"Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof;

The world, and they that dwell therein."

The second clause here is parallel with the first, indicating that the roaring sea is a metaphor of the restless, rebellious, and sinful populations of the earth. The message is: "Let them foam out their fury with all the vehemence they can muster, God is going to do something supremely GREAT; and there's not a thing that the opposing, antagonistic populations of mankind will be able to do about it." That Great Something will be announced in Psalms 98:9 (below).

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

7. Let the sea roar—Inanimate nature (Psalms 98:7-8), is called to unite with the Gentile nations and the covenant people in the highest strains of joy, at this coming of Jehovah to judge the earth. For a still higher realization of this “new song” of the universe, see Revelation 5:9-14. In both instances the occasion is the same: Jehovah’s righteous judgment of the world, or, in the New Testament, Christ’s victory over the nations.
