    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 68:29

    Because of thy temple at Jerusalem - The word rendered "temple" here properly means a palace; then, the abode of God considered as a king, or his residence as a king. It might, therefore, be applied either to the tabernacle or to the temple, erected as the special dwelling-place of God. As the word has so general a meaning, the passage here does not prove that the psalm was composed after Solomon's temple was reared, for it may refer to the tabernacle that David set up for the ark on Mount Zion. See Psalm 5:7, note; Psalm 65:4, note.

    At Jerusalem - literally, "upon," or "above" Jerusalem. Perhaps the idea is, that as the place of worship was built on Mount Zion, it was "above," or seemed to "overhang" the city. The city was built mostly in the valleys that lay between the different hills or eminences - Mount Zion, Mount Moriah, Mount Ophel.

    Shall kings bring presents unto thee - In honor of God and his religion. Compare Psalm 72:10. See also the notes at Isaiah 49:7, notes at Isaiah 49:23; notes at Isaiah 60:5, notes at Isaiah 60:16.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 68:29

    68:29 thy temple - The temple which Solomon shall build. Kings - Kings of the Gentiles: which was done in part, in the times of Solomon and Hezekiah, but more fully when the Lord was come into his temple.
