  1. 89:26 The sea…the rivers: geographically the limits of the Davidic empire (the Mediterranean and the Euphrates); mythologically, the traditional forces of chaos. See note on Ps 89:11.
  2. 89:28 Most High: a divine title, which is here extended to David as God’s own king, cf. Ps 2:7–9; Is 9:5. As God rules over the members of the heavenly council (Ps 89:6–9), so David, God’s surrogate, rules over earthly kings.

    his throne, like the sun before me.

For to which of the angels did God ever say:

“You are my son; this day I have begotten you”?(A)

Or again:

“I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me”?
