    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 99:9

    Worship at his holy hill - Worship him publicly in the temple.

    For the Lord our God is holy - The words of the chorus; as in the third and fifth verses.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 99:9

    Exalt the Lord our God - See the notes at Psalm 99:5.

    And worship at his holy hill - In Psalm 99:5, this is, "at his footstool." The "holy hill" refers to Zion, as the seat of the national worship.

    For the Lord our God is holy - See Psalm 99:5. This appropriately closes the psalm, by a distinct and solemn statement that the fact that Yahweh is a holy God is a reason for worshipping him. This is at all times the highest reason for adoration and praise.
