Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 97:7

_ _ Idolaters are utterly put to shame, for if angels must worship Him, how much more those who worshipped them.

_ _ all ye gods — literally, “all ye angels” (Psalms 8:5; Psalms 138:1; Hebrews 1:6; Hebrews 2:7). Paul quotes, not as a prophecy, but as language used in regard to the Lord Jehovah, who in the Old Testament theophania is the second person of the Godhead.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 97:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 97:7

Confounded — Let them be ashamed of their folly. Gods — All you whom the Gentiles have made the objects of their worship.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 97:7

(e) Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, (f) all [ye] gods.

(e) He signifies that God's judgments are ready to destroy the idolatry.

(f) Let all who are esteemed in the world fall down before him.
