Psalms 93

 

 

Verses 1-5

Psalm 93

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

Psalm 93:5 — "holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever" - Word Study on "becometh" - Strong says the Hebrew word "becometh" ( נָאָה) (H 4998) means, "to be pleasant (suitable), beautiful, comely." Holladay tells us that some believe ( נָאָה) is the Niphal of ( אָוָה) (H 183), 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."
