Psa 89:3

“I have.” The speaker abruptly changes to God in verses three and four, then changes back to the psalmist.

Psa 89:4(top)
Psa 89:5

“Let the heavens praise.” In this verse, as the context reveals, “the heavens” is a metonymy for the spirit beings who dwell in heaven and who can praise God. The planets, stars, and galaxies show the glory and power of God, but they do not “praise” Him.

“assembly of the holy ones.” This seems to refer to the larger assemblies of spirit beings that God sometimes holds. God’s inner council is mentioned in Psalm 89:7 [For more on God’s divine council, see commentary on Genesis 1:26. For more on God’s presiding over a large general assembly of spirit beings, see commentary on Job 1:6].

Psa 89:7

“the council of the holy ones.” The word “council” is translated from the Hebrew word sōd (#05475 סוֹד) and it refers to a “council, secret council, intimate council, circle of familiar friends, assembly.” In this context it refers to God’s intimate divine council, in contrast to larger general assemblies of spirit beings such as we see in Job 1:6 and 1 Kings 22:19, and which is mentioned in Psalm 89:5 [For more on God’s divine council, see commentary on Genesis 1:26. For more on God’s presiding over a large general assembly of spirit beings, see commentary on Job 1:6].

“visit.” When God “visited” someone, He intervened in their life, and He could intervene for the for their blessing or to bring deserved consequences or punishment. God is a righteous God, and He holds people accountable for their actions. Here in Psalm 89:32, He will “visit” them with a rod because of their sin. [For more on God “visiting,” see commentary on Exod. 20:5].
