he wears the universe

Psalm 104:1-4 (JDV)

Psalm 104:1 My throat, bless Yahveh! Yahveh my God, you are very great; you are clothed with majesty and splendor.
Psalm 104:2 He wraps himself in light as if it were a robe, spreading out the sky like a canopy,
Psalm 104:3 laying the beams of his palace on the waters above, making the clouds his chariot, walking on the wings of the wind,
Psalm 104:4 and making the winds his agents, flames of fire his servants.

In my systematic theology, I suggested that the universe is like a body for God. It can serve as visible evidence of his existence. He uses the world we see to prove his existence. One thing this implies is that we should not pollute or exploit this world.

The poet uses a similar analogy here.  He portrays God as wearing the elements of the natural world — using them for his divine purposes. He displays his power by demonstrating their powers.

He uses the power of light, wind, and fire to show us that he is there, and not silent.
