Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 29:10-11

_ _ Over this terrible raging of the elements God is enthroned, directing and restraining by sovereign power; and hence the comfort of His people. “This awful God is ours, our Father and our Love.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 29:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 29:10

The flood — The most violent waters, which sometimes fall from the clouds upon the earth. These are fitly mentioned, as being many times the companions of great thunders. And this may be alleged as another reason, why God's people praised him in his temple, because as he sends terrible tempests and thunders, so he also restrains and over — rules them. Sitteth — He doth sit, and will sit as king for ever, sending such tempests when it pleaseth him.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 29:10

The LORD sitteth upon the (k) flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

(k) To moderate the rage of the tempests and waters that they not destroy all.
