    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 135:3

    The Lord is good - Here is the first reason why he should be praised; and a second is subjoined:

    For it is pleasant - It is becoming to acknowledge this infinite Being, and our dependence on him; and it is truly comfortable to an upright mind to be thus employed.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 135:3

    Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good - See Psalm 107:1.

    Sing praises unto his name, for it is pleasant - See Psalm 33:1; Psalm 92:1. The idea here is, that it is a source of happiness, and that it is proper in itself.
