Psalm 93

The Majesty of God’s Rule

1

The Lord is king, he is robed in majesty;

the Lord is robed, he is girded with strength.

He has established the world; it shall never be moved;

2

your throne is established from of old;

you are from everlasting.

 

3

The floods have lifted up, O Lord,

the floods have lifted up their voice;

the floods lift up their roaring.

4

More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters,

more majestic than the waves of the sea,

majestic on high is the Lord!

 

5

Your decrees are very sure;

holiness befits your house,

O Lord, forevermore.

Verses 7–15

God sometimes grants prosperity to wicked men in displeasure; yet they flourish but for a moment. Let us seek for ourselves the salvation and grace of the gospel, that being daily anointed by the Holy Spirit, we may behold and share the Redeemer's glory. It is from his grace, by his word and Spirit, that believers receive all the virtue that keeps them alive, and makes them fruitful. Other trees, when old, leave off bearing, but in God's trees the strength of grace does not fail with the strength of nature. The last days of the saints are sometimes their best days, and their last work their best work: perseverance is sure evidence of sincerity. And may every sabbath, while it shows forth the Divine faithfulness, find our souls resting more and more upon the Lord our righteousness.
