1 The LORD reigns. He is clothed with majesty. The LORD is clothed with strength, with which he has girded himself. The world is also established so that it cannot be moved.
2 Your throne is established of old. You are from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice. The floods lift their waves.
4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, even mightier than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Your testimonies are very sure. Holiness is suitable for your house, O LORD, forever.
John Calvin's Chapter Summary:
The psalm commences with the celebration of the infinite glory of God. It is then declared that such is his faithfulness that he never deceives his own people, who, embracing his promises, wait with tranquil minds for their salvation amidst all the tempests and agitations of the world.
