Psalms 93:0

Psalms 93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

Psalms 93:5 “holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever” Word Study on “becometh” - Strong says the Hebrew word “becometh” ( נָאָה ) (H4998) means, “to be pleasant (suitable), beautiful, comely.” Holladay tells us that some believe ( נָאָה ) is the Niphal of ( אָוָה ) (H183), meaning, “to desire, be desirable, long, lust.” The RSV, NASB read, “It befits (is proper, suitable, becoming to).” The NIV reads, “It adorns.”

Scripture Reference - Note:

1 Corinthians 3:17, “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy , which temple ye are.”
