Psalms, Chapter 97
Christ is the Alpha and Omega in this psalm. His government speaks terror to his enemies, ver. 1 - 7. And comfort to his friends, whom he preserves and delivers, ver. 8 - 12.

1: Isles - The Gentile nations, as this word, used (Isa 42:4), is expounded, (Mt 12:21).

2: Darkness - A dark cloud doth encompass him.

6: Heavens - The angels, yea God himself from heaven.

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

8: Zion - Thy people dwelling in Zion or Jerusalem, to whom Christ came. Heard - The fame of thy judgments, and the setting up the kingdom of the Messiah.
