Psalms 99

Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 1

99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the {a} people tremble: he sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

(a) When God delivers his Church all the enemies will have reason to tremble.

Verse 3

99:3 Let them {b} praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy.

(b) Though the wicked rage against God, the godly will praise his Name and mighty power.

Verse 5

99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his {c} footstool; [for] he [is] holy.

(c) That is, before his temple or ark, where he promised to hear when they worshipped him, as now he promises his spiritual presence, wherever his Church is assembled.

Verse 6

99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, {d} and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

(d) Under these three he comprehends the whole people of Israel, with whom God made his promise.

Verse 8

99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of {e} their inventions.

(e) The more liberally God deals with his people, the more he punishes them who abuse his benefits.
