Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 29:9


29:9 To calve - Through the terror it causes, which hastens the birth. He names the hinds, because they bring forth their young with difficulty, #Job 39:1|,2. Discovereth - Heb. maketh bare, of its trees, which it breaks or strips of their leaves. Glory - Having shewed the terrible effects of God's power in other places, he now shews the blessed privilege of God's people, that are praising God in his temple, when the rest of the world are trembling under the tokens of his displeasure.
