In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 93:1-5, the Psalm opens saying, א   יְהֹוָה מָלָךְ גֵּאוּת לָבֵשׁ לָבֵשׁ יְהֹוָה עֹז הִתְאַזָּר אַף-תִּכּוֹן תֵּבֵל בַּל-תִּמּוֹט:  93:1 The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The Lord has clothed and girded Himself with strength; Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved. (NASB)  What does it mean to be clothed with majesty?  How is this related to the children of God and what do the rabbis have to say concerning God’s majesty, glory, and His Torah?  The psalmist also states the Lord has girded Himself with strength which leads to the firm establishment of the world.  How are we to understand this verse?  The psalmist continues saying, ב   נָכוֹן כִּסְאֲךָ מֵאָז מֵעוֹלָם אָתָּה:  93:2 Your throne is established from of old; You are from everlasting. (NASB)  The throne of God represents His kingship and rule over the earth and all of creation. Read more here: Tehillim 93-Part1
