CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The Lord is high above all nations - Hebrew, Exalted above all nations is Yahweh. That is, he rules over all nations; he directs their affairs; he is their sovereign king.

Who can comprehend such a God? Compare the notes at Psalm 8:1.

Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
For You are the LORD Most High over all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods.
The LORD is great in Zion, And He is exalted above all the peoples.
For Your lovingkindness is great above the heavens, And Your truth reaches to the skies.
For though the LORD is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, For His name alone is exalted; His glory is above earth and heaven.
