Deuteronomy 33:26 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun - We have already seen the literal meaning of Jeshurun, Deuteronomy 32:15; but besides its literal meaning, it seems to be used as an expression of particular affection: hence Calmet understands it as a diminutive of the word Israel. We know that τεκνοι, sons, in the mouth of St. John, signifies much less than τεκνια, which, properly translated, would be beloved children, a term which at once shows the helplessness of the offspring, and the tender affection of the parent. So Jeshurun may be understood here: and hence the Septuagint seem to have apprehended the full force of the word by translating it του ηγαπημενου, the beloved one, the object of God's especial delight.
Israel's God, and God's Israel, have no fellows. What were all the gods of the nations, even supposing they were real beings, in comparison of the Almighty? And what nation under heaven could be compared to the Israel of God? It was, however, from God's excellence that they derived theirs.
Rideth upon the heaven, etc. - Unites heaven and earth in thy defense and support, and comes with irresistible velocity to succor and defend thee, and to discomfit thine adversaries.

'The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between His shoulders.'--DEUT. xxxiii. 12. Benjamin was his father's favourite child, and the imagery of this promise is throughout drawn from the relations between such a child and its father.

The Best Things Work for Good to the Godly
"Tomorrow," Pharaoh said. Moses replied, "It will be as you say, so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God.
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you-- majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
You were shown these things so that you might know that the LORD is God; besides him there is no other.
To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him--his name is the LORD.
to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens, who thunders with mighty voice.
Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the heavens.
