Psalms 99:1

The LORD reigneth; let the (a) people tremble: he sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

(a) When God delivers his Church all the enemies will have reason to tremble.

Let them (b) praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy.

Psalms 99:5

psa 99:5

Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his (c) footstool; [for] he [is] holy.

(c) That is, before his temple or ark, where he promised to hear when they worshipped him, as now he promises his spiritual presence, wherever his Church is assembled.

Psalms 99:6

psa 99:6

Moses and Aaron among his priests, (d) and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

(d) Under these three he comprehends the whole people of Israel, with whom God made his promise.

Psalms 99:8

psa 99:8

Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of (e) their inventions.

(e) The more liberally God deals with his people, the more he punishes them who abuse his benefits.
