Psalms 89:27

My first — born — As he calls me father, Psalms 89:26, so I will make him my son, yea my first — born; who had divers privileges above other sons. This and the following passage in some sort agree to David, but are properly accomplished in Christ. Higher — This also was in some sort accomplished in David, but more fully in the Messiah.
