This beautiful Psalm begins with exalting our creator, God, because He made it, it is his. He owns all of it, he set it in place, he controls the entire environment and he surrounds it with his wonders and glories. Everything and everyone are subject to and answerable to our great God whether they believe it or not.
The ending is concerned with the King of glory, who he is: the Lord strong and mighty, The Lord the victorious one, The king of glory and The Lord of hosts.
He is the King of Glory, Revelation 19:14, who is the King of Glory, Revelation 19:14-16, the Word of God, John 1:1. He is the King of Kings, Lord of lords and we know him as the Lord Jesus Christ.
Between these two songs of praise the writer asks an important question; who can enter into the presence and have a relationship with this great and holy God?
The answer is someone with a clean heart, a pure heart, without vanity and without falsehood. This someone can only be Christ the perfect one, but we also can for we are hid in Christ. ‘For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.’ Colossians 3:3
