Psalms 93

Bullinger's Companion Bible NotesBullinger's Companion Notes

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 .

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