Psalms 24:6

This [is] the generation of them that seek him
The persons above described are such, who in every age are the generation of the children of God, and are accounted by him for a generation; they are such that seek him, in the first place, with their whole hearts, and in Christ, where they find him;

that seek thy face, O Jacob.
By the "face" of God is meant the favour of God, the discoveries of his love, the light of his countenance, than which nothing is more desirable to gracious souls, or more sought after by them; and by Jacob is meant the God of Jacob; and so Apollinarius has it in his metaphrase; see (Psalms 10:1) ; unless Christ should be intended, one of whose names is Israel, (Isaiah 49:3) ; or the words may be supplied, as they are by some Jewish writers F13, "this is Jacob"; or the persons before described are the seed of Jacob, and who are called by his name: and it may be observed, that the church of God often bears the same name, (Isaiah 43:1) (44:1,5) ; and then the sense is, the persons whose characters are given above are fit to ascend, and stand in the holy hill of God, are Israelites indeed, in whom there is no guile.

Selah; on this word, (See Gill on 3:2).
