New Defender's Study Bible Notes
104:24 in wisdom. The present world and its complex ecosystems provide abundantly for God’s providential care of His creation (as summarized in Psalm 104:10-23), and also provide abundant evidence of His omniscience in planning, designing and maintaining such a marvelous world.
104:25 great and wide sea. The present oceans are deep and wide, whereas the pre-Flood “seas” were relatively narrow and shallow, though numerous. They now contain the drain-waters from the Flood which once were stored in the vast “waters above the firmament” (Genesis 1:7) and the subterranean “deep.”
104:25 innumerable. There are many more marine organisms, both in number and variety, than air-breathing birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. This is especially true in the fossil record.
