The LORD is king, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed, he is girded with strength. He has established the world; it shall never be moved; 2 your throne is established from of old; you are from everlasting.

The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their roaring. 4 More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters, more majestic than the waves a Cn: Heb Because you, Lord, are my refuge; you have made of the sea, majestic on high is the LORD!

Ps 93 : The Lord's enthronement.

An enthronement psalm, praising the LORD as king. It begins a series of similar psalms (Ps 95; 96; 97; 99 ) characterized by the assertion, “The LORD is king!” Others translate “The LORD has become king,” and connect these psalms to the fall new year festival, in which God was symbolically (re‐)enthroned. These psalms reflect many of the rituals connected to the enthronement of the human king.

1–2 :

God's kingship revealed in his creating and stabilizing the world (Ps 96.10 ).

3–4 :

The LORD wins kingship by defeating the chaotic, world‐destroying waters; this assertion has its origin in the Canaanite myth of the storm god Baal's defeat of Sea; cf. Ps 29; 76.12–14; 89.9–10; 104.6–9 .

5 :

The Temple, the residence of the victorious God.
