    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 16:8

    The Psalm here put before us by the Chronicler, as sung liturgically by Asaph and his brethren on the day of the ark's entrance into Jerusalem, accords closely with the passages in the present Book of Psalms noted in the marg reff.

    It is, apparently, a thanksgiving service composed for the occasion out of Psalms previously existing.
