    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 22:23

    Ye that fear the Lord - This is an exhortation to the Jews particularly, to profit by the preaching of the Gospel. Perhaps, by them that fear him, the Gentiles, and particularly the proselytes, may be intended. The Jews are mentioned by name: Glorify him, all ye seed of Jacob; fear him, all ye seed of Israel.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 22:23

    Ye that fear the Lord - A phrase denoting those who are pious.

    Praise him - This is language which may be supposed to be addressed by the speaker in the great congregation. In the previous verse he had said that he would praise God "in the midst of the congregation;" he here speaks as if he were in that congregation, and addressing them. He, therefore, calls on them to praise and honor God.

    All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him - The descendants of Jacob; that is, all who are true worshippers of God.

    And fear him - Honour him, worship him. See the notes at Psalm 5:7.

    All ye the seed of Israel - Another name for Jacob Genesis 32:28, and designed to denote also all who are true worshippers of Yahweh.
