Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.Psalm 99
The Reign of Righteousness
1. His throne (Psalm 99:1-3)
2. Judgment and righteousness executed (Psalm 99:4-6)
3. His gracious dealings (Psalm 99:7-9)
It is a Psalm of the righteous government. The Lord who reigns is holy, demands obedience. He is holy and must be worshipped. Moses and Aaron were His priests in the past and Samuel among them that called upon His Name. He dealt graciously with His people in the past and forgave them, and the same Lord now reigneth and will deal in righteousness and mercy with His people.
