Psalms 97

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-12

XCVII. Yahweh in the Storm.— The appearance of Yahweh is described in terms of primitive religion, when He was the God of fire and tempest, earthquake and volcano. These traits are retained, but united with that later and far more perfect religion, which recognised Him as the only God ( Psalms 97:5; Psalms 97:7) and as a God of absolute righteousness.

Psalms 97:1 . isles: really means “ coastlands.”

Psalms 97:7 . See on Psalms 29:1 where sons of God = gods here.

Psalms 97:10 . Read, “ Yahweh loveth them that hate evil.”

Psalms 97:11 . Read, “ Light is risen for the righteous” (LXX).
