Psalms 135:5

For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
Read Chapter 135

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
6. ..."Because," says he, "I know that the Lord is great, and our God is above all gods" (ver. 5). If we should say to him, we ask thee, explain to us His greatness; would he not perchance answer us, He whom I see is not so very great, if He be able to be expounded by me. Let him then return to His works, and tell us. Let him hold in his conscience the greatness of God, which he has seen, which he has committed to our faith, whither he could not lead our eyes, and enumerate some of the things which the Lord hath done here; that unto us, who cannot see His greatness as he can, He may become sweet through the works of His which we can comprehend. ... ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Gods. Whatever is so esteemed by men. (St. Chrysostom) He then proceeds to show the vanity of such false gods. (Calmet)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
