Psalms 93:4 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 93:4

The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters,
&c.] Christ is the most High; he is God over all, higher than the highest; he is, as King, higher than the kings of the earth; he is in the highest heavens, and higher than they; he is highly exalted, as Mediator, at the right hand of God: he is the mighty God, and mighty Saviour; yea, he is Almighty, and therefore mightier than all his enemies, and the noise they make, and the force they use; he is stronger than the strong man armed; than Satan, and all his principalities and powers; than all the persecuting princes and potentates of this world; than antichrist, and all the antichristian states: yea, than "the mighty waves of the sea"; the same are intended as before F3.


F3 Vide Homer. Iliad. 21. v. 190, ]91. where the same is said of Jove, almost in the same words, and repeated as here.
