Psalm 93 Bible Commentary

John Wesley’s Explanatory Notes

(Read all of Psalm 93)

Verse 1

[1] The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

Clothed — That majesty and strength which he always had, he will shew in the eyes of all people.

Moved — He will overrule all the confusions in the world, so that they shall end in the erection of that kingdom of the Messiah, which can never be moved.

Verse 3

[3] The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

Floods — The enemies of thy kingdom.

Verse 5

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

Testimonies-Thy promises, which no less than the precepts are God's testimonies, or the witnesses, or declarations of his will to mankind. He seems here to speak of those precious promises concerning the erection of his kingdom in the world by the Messiah.

Holiness — It becometh thy people to be holy in all their approach to thee.
