New Defender's Study Bible Notes
98:3 the ends of the earth. When Christ returns, in glory at the end of the tribulation period, “every eye shall see Him” (Revelation 1:7).
98:6 sound of cornet. In contrast to the “solemn sound” prescribed for sabbath-day worship in Israel (see note on Psalm 92:3), the time when Christ returns in glory will be a time for “the joyful sound” (Psalm 89:15), with a “new song” (Psalm 98:1), and all kinds of musical instruments (note also Psalm 150).
98:9 He cometh to judge. When Christ returns, there will be several judgments, all of them “with equity,” for “the Father...hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22). See notes on Matthew 25:32; I Corinthians 3:12-15; Romans 8:1; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:12-15).
