Psalm 93:3-4 AMPC
3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up the roaring of their waves. 4 The Lord on high is mightier and more glorious than the noise of many waters, yes, than the mighty breakers and waves of the sea.

  • From NetBible Ps 93:4
    * The surging(roaring) waters here symbolizes the hostile enemies of God who seek to destroy the order he has established in the world. The Lord is depicted as elevated above and sovereign over these raging waters.

Psalm 65:6-7 AMPC
6 Who by [Your] might have founded the mountains, being girded with power, 7 Who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples?

Psalm 46:1-3,10-11 AMPC
1 God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas, 3 Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! …
… 10 Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

1 Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 2 Give to the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness or in holy array. 3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lord is upon many (great) waters. …
… 10 The Lord sat as King over the deluge(flood); the Lord [still] sits as King [and] forever! 11 The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.

  • From NetBible Ps 29:3
    *The psalm depicts the Lord in the role of a warrior-king, so the thunder is his battle cry. The Lord is depicted as elevated above and sovereign over the raging waters(his enemies).
  • From NetBible Ps 29:10
