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.
2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4 The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Lord, for ever.
The celebration of God’s majesty and power is expressed through the description of His reign, robed in majesty and armed with strength! His throne was established from eternity and will not be moved! It has not been without opposition however! The seas, peoples of the earth and the world powers who have opposed His rule have lifted their voice but to no avail. God’s voice through the thunder has drowned out their voice, He remains Ruler of the universe through His holiness.
What may bring fear to the ungodly brings assurance to His people. Because the house of the Lord is filled with holiness the Lord’s command are sure. God’s great being and character – His might, sovereignty, strength, and holiness – are His eternally.
