Treasury of Scripture

The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

goodly cedars.

Psalm 104:16
The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;









(10) Goodly cedars.--Literally, cedars of God. The branches of the vine are to grow to resemble the luxuriance of the most magnificent of all forest trees.

Verse 10. - The hills were covered with the shadow of it. The "hills" intended are probably those of the south - the hill country of Judah - since the clauses which follow designate the boundaries towards the north, west, and east. (So Hengstenberg, Kay, Professor Cheyne, and others.) And the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars; rather, and the goodly cedar trees were covered with their branches. The cedars of Lebanon are intended. They marked the boundary line on the north. The psalmist calls them "cedars of God," by a strong, but not unprecedented (Psalm 36:6), hyperbole.
