Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 93

1. The Lord has reigned; He has attired Himself with majesty; yea the Lord has attired Himself, He has girded Himself with might. The world also is established that it cannot be moved.   א. יְהֹוָה מָלָךְ גֵּאוּת לָבֵשׁ לָבֵשׁ יְהֹוָה עֹז הִתְאַזָּר אַף תִּכּוֹן תֵּבֵל בַּל תִּמּוֹט:
The Lord has reigned: They will say in the future.  
The world also is established: When He reigns, the earth will rejoice.  
2. Your throne is established of old; You are from everlasting.   ב. נָכוֹן כִּסְאֲךָ מֵאָז מֵעוֹלָם אָתָּה:
3. The rivers have raised, O Lord, the rivers have raised their voice; the rivers have raised their depths.   ג. נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת | יְהֹוָה נָשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת קוֹלָם יִשְׂאוּ נְהָרוֹת דָּכְיָם:
The rivers have raised, O Lord: This is an expression of a cry and a plaint: Woe, O Lord, behold! Your enemies, who flood like rivers, have raised their voice and roar, and the lowness of the depths of their locks they will raise and lift on high constantly to be haughty against You. Every expression of דכא is an expression of depth and lowness.  
4. More than the voices of great waters and more than the mightiest breakers of the sea, is the Lord mighty on high.   ד. מִקֹּלוֹת | מַיִם רַבִּים אַדִּירִים מִשְׁבְּרֵי יָם אַדִּיר בַּמָּרוֹם יְהֹוָה:
More than the voices of great waters, etc.: I know that more than the voices of great waters, which roar over us, and more than the mightiest breakers of this sea, You are mighty, O Lord, and Your hand is powerful over them.  
5. Your testimonies are very faithful to Your house, the dwelling of holiness, O Lord, to the length of days.   ה. עֵדֹתֶיךָ | נֶאֶמְנוּ מְאֹד לְבֵיתְךָ נָאֲוָה קֹדֶשׁ יְהֹוָה לְאֹרֶךְ יָמִים:
Your testimonies: which Your prophets prophesied and promised concerning Your house, which is the dwelling of holiness.  
are very faithful to Your house: and to the length of days He looks forward to them, and although it has been a long time, they are very faithful to God.  
dwelling: Heb. נאוה, like (83:13): “the dwellings נְאוֹת of God,” an expression of נָוֶה. You should know [that this is so] because no instance of נָאוָה has a pronounced “aleph,” for they are an expression of נוֹי beauty, but this one has an “aleph” which is pronounced.
