    English Revised Version (ERV)

    Mountains and all hills; fruitful trees and all cedars:

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 148:9

    Mountains, and all hills - Whether primitive, secondary, or alluvial; of ancient or recent formation, with all their contents, quarries, mines, and minerals. But what a profusion of wisdom and skill is lavished on these! To instance only in the different metals, earths, and minerals; especially the precious stones.

    Fruitful trees - עץ פרי ets peri, fruit trees of all kinds.

    And all cedars - Every kind of forest tree. The formation of the fruits, their infinitely varied hues and savours, proclaim the unsearchable wisdom and goodness of God: not less so, the growth, structure, and various qualities and uses of the forest trees.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 148:9

    Mountains, and all hills - As being among the loftiest objects of earth, raising their heads highest toward the heavens.

    Fruitful trees, and all cedars - Fruitful trees, not as distinguished from those which are barren, but as distinguished from forest-trees, those whose nature is that they do not bear fruit. Of the latter, the cedar was the most prominent, and, therefore, is made the representative of the whole.
