    This gate of the Lord - Supposed to be the answer of the Levites to the request of the king.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 118:20

    This gate of the Lord - This gate dedicated to the service of the Lord; that belongs to the house of the Lord.

    Into which the righteous shall enter - Through which the righteous pass. That is, It is for such persons, and all who come with a purpose to serve and worship God should be permitted to pass through them; I claim the privilege, therefore, of so passing through these gates into the house of God, for I come to praise him. All who are truly righteous, all who desire to worship God, all who wish and purpose to be holy, have a right thus to enter the house of God - to be recognized as his friends - to be permitted to join in all the devotions of his people; all such will have a right to enter the temple above. None have a right to exclude them here; none in heaven will be disposed to exclude them there.
