PSALM 24

      Ps 24:1-10. God's supreme sovereignty requires a befitting holiness of life and heart in His worshippers; a sentiment sublimely illustrated by describing His entrance into the sanctuary, by the symbol of His worship--the ark, as requiring the most profound homage to the glory of His Majesty.

      1. fulness--everything.
      world--the habitable globe, with
      they that dwell--forming a parallel expression to the first clause.

      2. Poetically represents the facts of Ge 1:9.

      3, 4. The form of a question gives vivacity. Hands, tongue, and heart are organs of action, speech, and feeling, which compose character.
      hill of the Lord--(compare Ps 2:6, &c.). His Church--the true or invisible, as typified by the earthly sanctuary.

      4. lifted up his soul--is to set the affections (Ps 25:1) on an object; here,
      vanity--or, any false thing, of which swearing falsely, or to falsehood, is a specification.

      5. righteousness--the rewards which God bestows on His people, or the grace to secure those rewards as well as the result.

      6. Jacob--By "Jacob," we may understand God's people (compare Isa 43:22; 44:2, &c.), corresponding to "the generation," as if he had said, "those who seek Thy face are Thy chosen people."

      7-10. The entrance of the ark, with the attending procession, into the holy sanctuary is pictured to us. The repetition of the terms gives emphasis.

      10. Lord of hosts--or fully, Lord God of hosts (Ho 12:5; Am 4:13), describes God by a title indicative of supremacy over all creatures, and especially the heavenly armies (Jos 5:14; 1Ki 22:19). Whether, as some think, the actual enlargement of the ancient gates of Jerusalem be the basis of the figure, the effect of the whole is to impress us with a conception of the matchless majesty of God.
