Psalm 93:4 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The soil in which the righteous are planted or (if it is not rendered with the lxx πεφυτευμένοι, but with the other Greek versions μεταφυτευθέντες) into which they are transplanted, and where they take root, a planting of the Lord, for His praise, is His holy Temple, the centre of a family fellowship with God that is brought about from that point as its starting-point and is unlimited by time and space. There they stand as in sacred ground and air, which impart to them ever new powers of life; they put forth buds (הפריח as in Job 14:9) and preserve a verdant freshness and marrowy vitality (like the olive, 52:10, Judges 9:9) even into their old age (נוּב of a productive force for putting out shoots; vid., with reference to the root נב, Genesis, S. 635f.), cf. Isaiah 65:22 : like the duration of the trees is the duration of my people; they live long in unbroken strength, in order, in looking back upon a life rich in experiences of divine acts of righteousness and loving-kindness, to confirm the confession which Moses, in Deuteronomy 32:4, places at the head of his great song. There the expression is אין עול, here it is אין עלתה בּו. This ‛ôlātha, softened from ‛awlātha - So the Ker - with a transition from the aw, au into ô, is also found in Job 5:16 (cf. עלה equals עולה Psalm 58:3; Psalm 64:7; Isaiah 61:8), and is certainly original in this Psalm, which also has many other points of coincidence with the Book of Job (like Psalm 107, which, however, in Psalm 107:42 transposes עלתה into עולה).

2 Samuel 22:5
"For the waves of death encompassed me, the torrents of destruction assailed me;
though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples,
For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD,
You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.
but you, O LORD, are on high forever.
For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea.
