Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 118 :19

Open to me the gates - Throw open the doors of the temple, that I may enter and perform my vows unto the Lord.

Barnes's Commentary on Psalms 118 :19

Open to me the gates of righteousness ... - The gates of the house devoted to a righteous God; the gates of a house where the principles of righteousness are strengthened, and where the just emotions of the heart may be expressed in the language of praise. Compare the notes at Isaiah 26:2. The language here may be regarded as addressed to those who had charge of the house of the Lord - the priests - requesting that they would open the doors and permit him to enter to praise God for his mercy. Compare Isaiah 38:20.
