New Defender's Study Bible Notes

29:5 cedars of Lebanon. As David apparently is viewing the actions of a great storm blowing inland from the Mediterranean, he seems to be translated in the Spirit back in time to that greatest of all storms, the Genesis flood itself. The luxuriant forests of the antediluvian world are seen being broken and uprooted by the rushing waters, and the only way he can describe it is to visualize the mighty cedar forests of Lebanon being torn up and carried down in great floating mats of vegetation (these would eventually become the fossil forests and coal beds in the great depths of sediment also being translated and deposited by the torrential waters).
