Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 104:2

_ _ light — is a figurative representation of the glory of the invisible God (Matthew 17:2; 1 Timothy 6:16). Its use in this connection may refer to the first work of creation (Genesis 1:3).

_ _ stretchest out the heavens — the visible heavens or sky which cover the earth as a curtain (Isaiah 40:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 104:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 104:2

Light — With that first created light, which the psalmist fitly puts in the first place, as being the first of God's visible works.
