Darby Bible Translation
Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thy house, O Jehovah, for ever.

World English Bible
Your statutes stand firm. Holiness adorns your house, Yahweh, forevermore.

Young's Literal Translation
Thy testimonies have been very stedfast, To Thy house comely is holiness, O Jehovah, for length of days!

Psalm 93:5 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Thy testimonies are very sure - Thou wilt as surely fulfill thy word as thou wilt keep possession of thy throne.

Holiness becometh thine house - Thy nature is holy, all thy works are holy, and thy word is holy; therefore, thy house - thy Church should be holy. The building itself should be sanctified - should be so consecrated to thy worship alone, that it shall never be employed in any other service. The ministers of this Church should be holy, the members holy, the ordinances holy; its faith, its discipline, and its practice holy. And this at all times, and in all circumstances; for holiness becometh thine house-for ever," לארך ימים le-orech yamim, for length of days. During the whole lapse of time; till the sun and moon shall be no more. The old Psalter says the house of God is man's saule; and of this house holiness is נאוה naavah, "the ornament;" it produces that meek and quiet spirit which is in the sight of God of great price. No decoration of person nor simplicity of dress can supply the place of this heavenly clothing.

The floods lift up their waves.--PSA. 93:3.

Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it? When thou

1. When I was staying with this lady, [1] already spoken of, in whose house I remained more than six months, our Lord ordained that a holy woman [2] of our Order should hear of me, who was more than seventy leagues away from the place. She happened to travel this way, and went some leagues out of her road that she might see me. Our Lord had moved her in the same year, and in the same month of the year, that He had moved me, to found another monastery of the Order; and as He had given her this desire,
