Psalms 93:5

_ _ While His power inspires dread, His revealed will should secure our confidence (compare Psalms 19:7; Psalms 25:10), and thus fear and love combined, producing all holy emotions, should distinguish the worship we offer in His house, both earthly and heavenly.

See commentary on Psalms 93:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 93:5

Testimonies — Thy promises, which no less than the precepts are God's testimonies, or the witnesses, or declarations of his will to mankind. He seems here to speak of those precious promises concerning the erection of his kingdom in the world by the Messiah. Holiness — It becometh thy people to be holy in all their approach to thee.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Thy (d) testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

(d) Besides God's power and wisdom in creating and governing his great mercy also appears in that he has given his people his word and covenant.
