The trees of the Lord - From the grass, from the herb, from the vine, and from bread, as adapted to sustain the living beings upon the earth, the psalmist passes to the more lofty and grand productions of the vegetable world - to those which display more manifestly the power of God, and which furnish abodes and retreats for the various orders of living beings.

They flourish, sustained abundantly by that which is derived from the earth and the waters.
Which he hath planted - So lofty and large, that it would seem as if none could plant them but the Almighty.
