Psalms 104:4


He makes the winds his messengers, and the flaming fire his attendant. 1 


2Ki 2:11; 2Ki 6:17; Eze 1:13; Ac 23:8; Heb 1:7,14

NET © Notes

tc Heb “and his attendants a flaming fire.” The lack of agreement between the singular “fire” and plural “attendants” has prompted various emendations. Some read “fire and flame.” The present translation assumes an emendation to “his attendant” (יו in the Hebrew text being virtually dittographic).

sn In Ugaritic mythology Yam’s messengers appear as flaming fire before the assembly of the gods. See G. R. Driver, Canaanite Myths and Legends, 42.
