Messiah's voice in creation in praise
Psalm 104, which
celebrates Jehovah as Creator requires very few remarks.
It will be noticed that it is occupied almost entirely
with the earth. He is clothed with the glory of the
heavens, which is described in most beautiful language;
but the earth is the subject. It is looked at as existing
as the abode of men, as it is, but all depended on
Jehovah's sovereign will. It is not the earth which is
celebrated, but Jehovah, the Creator of it. It is not
paradise, but this earth, as we see it in man's hand. But
the psalm looks to sinners being consumed out of it, and
the wicked being no more. This gives the psalm,
evidently, a peculiar character, and connects it with the
introduction of the first-begotten into the world.
