Psalms 93

Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New TestamentsSutcliffe's Commentary

Verses 1-5

This psalm was sung when David removed the ark, and triumphed over every foe. But to this, and some following psalms, there is no title in the Hebrew, nor in the Hexapla of Origen, nor in Eusebius, as both Euthimius and Theodoret testify. It was written after the storms of war and commotion had subsided, and while the courts or worship of the Lord flourished; for it is said, Psalms 93:5, Holiness becometh thine house for ever. It contemplates the majesty of God from the beginning of the world, as exalted above all opposing power. His throne, being established of old, the church laughs at the waterfloods, which lift up their voice against his saints.

Let God arise, and all his foes

Be scattered far and wide;

We’ll talk no more of Zion’s woes,

While he is on our side.
