Psalms 93:3-4

Context

93:3 The waves 1  roar, O Lord,

the waves roar,

the waves roar and crash. 2 

93:4 Above the sound of the surging water, 3 

and the mighty waves of the sea,

the Lord sits enthroned in majesty. 4 

1 tn The Hebrew noun translated “waves” often refers to rivers or streams, but here it appears to refer to the surging waves of the sea (see v. 4, Ps 24:2).

2 tn Heb “the waves lift up, O Lord, the waves lift up their voice, the waves lift up their crashing.”

3 tn Heb “mighty waters.”

sn The surging waters here symbolizes the hostile enemies of God who seek to destroy the order he has established in the world (see Pss 18:17; 29:3; 32:6; 77:20; 144:7; Isa 17:13; Jer 51:55; Ezek 26:19; Hab 3:15). But the Lord is depicted as elevated above and sovereign over these raging waters.

4 tn Heb “mighty on high [is] the Lord.”
