CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth - That is, with reference to the productions of the earth; to the changes which occur; to the seasons; to snow, frost, ice, cold, heat, wind; and he is universally and immediately obeyed. Nature everywhere yields a ready acquiescence to his will.
His word runneth very swiftly - As if it hastened to obey him. There is no delay. Compare the notes at Psalm 33:9 : "He spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast." Snow, and frost, and ice, and cold, and heat, and wind, are entirely obedient to him. There is no reluctance in obeying him; there is no delay.

"It changes direction, turning around by His guidance, That it may do whatever He commands it On the face of the inhabited earth.
He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.
He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.
He sends forth His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.
Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created.
