    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 105:4

    Seek the Lord - Worship the one only Supreme Being, as the only and all-sufficient good for the soul of man.

    And his strength - Man is weak; and needs connection with the strong God that he may be enabled to avoid evil and do good.

    Seek his face - Reconciliation to him. Live not without a sense of his favor.

    Evermore - Let this be thy chief business. In and above all thy seeking, seek this.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 105:4

    Seek the Lord and his strength - Seek strength from him; seek that his strength may be imparted to you; seek him as a Being of almighty power; as One by whom you may be strengthened. The Septuagint and Vulgate render this, "Seek the Lord, and 'be strengthened.'" Strength comes from God, and it is only by his strength that we can be strong; only by our making use of his omnipotence in our own behaIf that we can discharge the duties, and bear the trials of this life. Compare the notes at Isaiah 40:29-31.

    Seek his face evermore - His favor. His smiling upon us, his lifting up the light of his countenance, is synonymous with his favor. See Psalm 24:6; Psalm 27:8. Compare the notes at Psalm 4:6.
