CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Fire, and hail - Fire, when accompanied by hail; that is, the lightning. See Psalm 18:12.
Snow, and vapors - Snow and clouds. It was not unnatural that these should be combined, or suggested together to the mind.
Stormy wind - The storm; the tempest.
Fulfilling his word - Obeying his command; accomplishing his purpose. Let the storm-wind, which seems to be so little under any control, speak his praise by showing how obedient it is to his will, and how exactly it carries out his designs. Its perfect submission to his laws - the exactness with which, though apparently so fierce, raging, and lawless, it carries out his plans, and pauses when he commands it - is in fact an act of praise or homage, as it proclaims his majesty, his supremacy, and his power. On the sentiment here expressed, compare Psalm 107:29, note; Psalm 89:9, note.

"It changes direction, turning around by His guidance, That it may do whatever He commands it On the face of the inhabited earth.
From the brightness before Him passed His thick clouds, Hailstones and coals of fire.
Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!
He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.
For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes.
