1 The LORD reigns (3 Psalms commence thus [93,97,99]; they each end with the thought of "holiness", indicating the when He reigns, "all will be holy" [Isa. 23:18. Zech. 14:20,21]. This explains the cry of the Zoa [Rev. 4:5], because His judgments will prepare the way for His reign), He is clothed with majesty;
The LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith He has girded Himself:
The habitable world also is established (firmly fixed), that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old:
You are from everlasting.
3 The floods (generally applied to rivers) have lifted up, O LORD,
The floods have lifted up their voice;
The floods lift up their waves.
4 The LORD on high is mightier
Than the noise of many waters,(Put for people. See Rev. 17:1; 1:6; 14:2; 19:6)
Yes, than the mighty breakers of the sea.
5 Your testimonies (cp. Ps. 19:7) are very sure:
Holiness becomes Your house,
O LORD, for ever.
