Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 104:3

_ _ in the waters — or, it may be “with”; using this fluid for the beams, or frames, of His residence accords with the figure of clouds for chariots, and wind as a means of conveyance.

_ _ walketh — or, “moveth” (compare Psalms 18:10, Psalms 18:11; Amos 9:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 104:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 104:3

Waters — In the waters above the heavens, as they are called, Genesis 1:7.
