Thou art ruler over the pride of the sea, In the lifting up of its billows Thou dost restrain them.
Psalm 89:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou rulest the raging of the sea - Whoever has seen the sea in a storm, when its waves run what is called mountain high, must acknowledge that nothing but omnipotent power could rule its raging.
When the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them - Thou governest both its flux and reflux. Thou art the Author of storms and calms. There may be a reference here to the passage of the Red Sea, and the strong wind that agitated its waves at that time; as the next verse seems to indicate.
