Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 29



Verses 1-11

XXIX. Yahweh's glory in the storm (Psalms 29:1-9): He is enthroned for the protection of His people (Psalms 29:10 f.).

Psalms 29:1. the sons of God (mg.) are superhuman beings (cf. Genesis 6:1*, Job 1:6*) who minister in the heavenly Temple.

Psalms 29:2 b. Follow mg. The LXX read, "in his holy court."

Psalms 29:6. Sirion is another name for Hermon.

Psalms 29:7. MT makes no sense. Probably some word has fallen out and the meaning is that the thunder cleaves rocks or the like [with flames of fire].

Psalms 29:9 b. Read with a different punctuation, "shaketh the terebinth trees."
