Psalms 83:18

That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah
Or, "that thou, thy name alone is Jehovah" F16, a self-existent Being, the Being of beings, the everlasting I AM, the immutable God; for this name is expressive of the being, eternity, and unchangeableness of God, who is, and was, and is to come, invariably the same, (Revelation 1:4) which is to be understood not to the exclusion of the Son or Spirit, who are with the Father the one Jehovah, (Deuteronomy 6:4) , and to whom this name is given; see (Exodus 17:6) , compared with (1 Corinthians 10:9) (Isaiah 40:3) (Jeremiah 23:6) (Isaiah 6:8,9) compared with (Acts 28:25,26) , but to the exclusion of all nominal and fictitious deities, the gods of the Heathens; and the being and perfections of God are known by the judgments he executes, (Psalms 9:16) ,

art the most High over all the earth;

and that thou art
F17, being the Maker and the Possessor of it, and the sovereign Lord of its inhabitants, doing in it what seems good in his sight; see (Genesis 14:22) (Daniel 4:35) , for the accents require two propositions in the text: the Heathens F18 give the title of most high to their supreme deity: the Targum is,

``over all the inhabitants of the earth.''
