    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 116:19

    In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem - He speaks as if present in the city, offering his vowed sacrifices in the temple to the Lord.

    Most of this Psalm has been applied to our Lord and his Church; and in this way it has been considered as prophetic; and, taken thus, it is innocently accommodated, and is very edifying. This is the interpretation given of the whole by the old Psalter.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 116:19

    In the courts of the Lord's house - See the notes at Psalm 65:4. Compare Psalm 84:2; Psalm 92:13; Psalm 96:8; Psalm 100:4; Psalm 135:2.

    In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem - Where the tabernacle, and afterward the temple, was reared.

    Praise ye the Lord - Hallelujah. A call on others to join in the praise of God. The psalmist felt his own heart drawn to the service of praise by all the mercies of God; he desired, as an expression of his own feelings, that others should unite with him in that sacred exercise. When our own hearts are filled with gratitude, we wish that all others may partake of the same feeling.
