    Definitions for Psalms 95:5

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 95:5

    The sea is his - The sea and the dry land are equally his, for he has formed them both, and they are his property. He governs and disposes of them as he sees good. He is the absolute Master of universal nature. Therefore there is no other object of worship nor of confidence.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 95:5

    The sea is his - Margin, as in Hebrew, "Whose the sea is." That is, The sea belongs to him, with all which it contains.

    And he made it - It is his, "because" he made it. The creation of anything gives the highest possible right over it.

    And his hands formed the dry land - He has a claim, therefore, that it should be recognized as his, and that all who dwell upon it, and derive their support from it, should acknowledge him as its great Owner and Lord.
