    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 68:24

    They have seen thy goings - These kings of the Amorites have seen thy terrible majesty in their discomfiture, and the slaughter of their subjects.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 68:24

    They have seen thy goings, O God - That is, the lookers on in the solemn procession referred to in Psalm 68:25; or, in other words, Thy goings have been attended by pomp and magnificence, and have been witnessed by multitudes. The word "goings" here refers to the solemn triumphal processions which celebrated the victories achieved by God.

    Even the goings of my God, my King - The psalmist here speaks of God as "his" God and "his" King. The idea seems to have suddenly crossed his mind that this great God, so glorious, is "his" God. He exults and rejoices that He whom he adores is such a God; that a God so great and glorious is "his." So the believer now, when he looks upon the works of God, when he contemplates their vastness, their beauty, and their grandeur, is permitted to feel that the God who made them is "his" God; to find consolation in the thought that his "Father made them all."

    "He looks abroad into the varied field

    Of Nature, and, though poor, perhaps, compared

    With those whose mansions glitter in his sight,

    Calls the delightful scenery all his own.

    His are the mountains, and the valleys his,

    And the resplendent rivers; - his to enjoy

    With a propriety that none can feel

    But who, with filial confidence inspired,

    Can lift to heaven an unpresumptuous eye,

    And smiling say, 'My Father made them all!'

    Are they not his by a peculiar right,

    And by an emphasis of interest his,
