Study Guide – Psalm 93


Psalm93
1 The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;

    the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
    indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
2 Your throne was established long ago;
    you are from all eternity.


How do verses 1-2 describe the Lord? Restate each line in your own words.


3 The seas have lifted up, Lord,
    the seas have lifted up their voice;
    the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
    mightier than the breakers of the sea—
    the Lord on high is mighty.


What do you think "the seas have lifted up" means? Imagine violent seas… what is that like for a person in a boat or living along the shore?


How does verse 4 describe the Lord compared to the seas in verse 3?


What strains have lifted up against you today and how could the Lord help you?


5 Your statutes, Lord, stand firm;
    holiness adorns your house
    for endless days. NIV


What comfort could verse 5 offer you today?

If you have time, read about Jesus calming the sea in Matthew 8:23-27. With Psalm 93 in mind, why do you think Jesus admonishes the disciples for having "so little faith"?
