Commentary
This psalm portrays Jesus ruling the earth during the Millennium, but also to some extent in the past and in the present age. He is seen as Jehovah (the LORD), robed in majesty and armed with strength. His might is emphasised, portraying him as a mighty conqueror. Jesus is also the 'Mighty One' in Psalm 45:3 and Isaiah 10:34. The world is established and secure under his rule.

Verse 2 says "Your throne has been secure from ancient times; you have always been king". This reminds us of Micah 5:2, "As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, seemingly insignificant among the clans of Judah – from you a king will emerge who will rule over Israel on my behalf, one whose origins are in the distant past”.

In Revelation 1:12-18, John saw Jesus robed in his heavenly majesty. Daniel also saw a very similar vision of the Pre-Incarnate Christ in Daniel 10:4-6.

The surging waters in verses 3 and 4 represent 'peoples, multitudes, nations and languages' (Revelation 17:15). In Genesis 1:2, the waters of the deep represent chaos and godlessness. Here in verse 4, the waves crashing and roaring represent the nations in uproar and chaos. But over all that uproar and chaos, Jesus sits enthroned in majesty, and his law is reliable.
