Majesty on high

Majesty on high might have been a way of speaking of God without mentioning His personal name Yahweh (Jehovah). The Jews did not speak the name Yahweh because they did not want to mispronounce it or profane it in any way. They came up with several alternative names for God. In that sense, Majesty on high might be the equivalent of the name God on high. It is a name that tells of God’s exaltation.
