CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters - That is, he is more powerful than those waters; he is able to control them. See Psalm 65:7, note; Job 38:11, note. The original here is more rapid in the course of the thought; more emphatic and forcible: "More than the voice of waters - many - mighty - the breakers of the sea - in the high place is Jehovah." He is over all those billows and breakers; more mighty than they all. They can proceed no further than he permits; they will be stayed when and where he commands.

Yea, than the mighty waves of the sea - The original word here corresponds precisely with our word "breakers" - the mighty waves that "break" on the beach.

2 Samuel 22:5
"For the waves of death encompassed me; The torrents of destruction overwhelmed me;
Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
Who stills the roaring of the seas, The roaring of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples.
For who in the skies is comparable to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the LORD,
You rule the swelling of the sea; When its waves rise, You still them.
But You, O LORD, are on high forever.
For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
